Shannen Doherty was sentenced on Tuesday for a drunken driving arrest which occured last December near Los Angeles, Reuters reports. The actress must pay a $1,500 fine and complete six days of a work release program or serve 48 hours in jail. However, both penalties could be waived if Doherty agrees to speak at Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) events and at a Thousand Oaks teen center. The Charmed actress was arrested after patrol officers noticed her vehicle weaving on Highway 101 in Thousand Oaks. Prosecutors said her blood-alcohol level was .13 percent at the time of her arrest, well above the legal limit of .08 percent.
