Former Hollywood madam Heidi Fleiss was arrested in Nevada on Thursday for investigation of driving under the influence and possessing drugs without a prescription.
Fleiss, 42, was released on $1,300 bail following her morning arrest near her home in Pahrump, police say.
Nye County, Nev., deputies responded to a DUI call and contacted the onetime madam – who now runs a laundry – at 9:23 a.m.
"During the investigation she was found to have prescription narcotics on her person, not in a prescription bottle, and could produce no evidence that the prescription pain medication had been prescribed to her," police said in a press release. "She was arrested and transported to [jail]."
A male passenger in her car, identified as John Owen, 53, was also arrested for possession of marijuana and being under the influence.

WARNED: A judge warned actor Tom Sizemore ("Black Hawk Down") to stay away from his former girlfriend, Hollywood madam Heidi Fleiss, the Associated Press reports. During a hearing on Thursday, the judge ordered Sizemore not to contact "Miss Fleiss in any way." Sizemore was sentenced to six months in jail in October for harassing, annoying and abusing Fleiss during the couple's two-year relationship. But the sentence was postponed in order to allow Sizemore time to complete a live-in drug rehab program. It was not immediately clear what prompted the judge's warning, but the actor is due back in court March 30 to determine if he violated his probation.
