Lisa Robin Kelly was arrested again over the weekend, this time under the suspicion of drunk driving.

The "That '70's Show" star was taken into custody last November along with her husband Robert Joseph Gilliam over a disturbance at their Charlotte, N.C. home.

Over the weekend, Kelly caught the attention of Southern California Highway Patrol officers when her car stalled off Interstate 5 in Burbank, according to the Associated Press.

Officers noticed signs of possible intoxication, and the 43-year-old was arrested on suspicion of DUI late Saturday night. She was released on $5,000 bail.

The actress is best known for her role was Laurie Forman, the sister of Topher Grace's lead character Eric on "That '70's Show."

Kelly only appeared on the first three seasons of the show though, and was later replaced by a different actress. The FOX series ended in 2006 and also starred Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher.

Following the end of her career with "That 70's Show," the actress has faced several personal problems, and Saturday's arrest was not her first DUI-related incident.

In 2010, Kelly plead guilty to a DUI which resulted in 12 months of probation.

Back in 2011, the actress was arrested on a felony spousal abuse charge. The subsequent mug shot of Kelly later went viral, shocking fans with her gaunt, unusual appearance.

The arrest along with the mug shot led many people to believe that the actress was on drugs. Kelly later admitted a past addiction to drugs, but maintained that she had gotten clean.

"I had lost a baby, as a result of that, I lost everything," said the actress, according to the Daily Mail. "And I was abusing alcohol, which I no longer do. With the 70's Show, I was guilty- of the drinking problem- and I ran. And I am not running from this. And I have paid my dues."

Moreover, Kelly claimed that her arrest in April was the result of false accusations. According to her Facebook account, the actress paid the $50,000 bail at the time, but it "wiped out" her bank account.

"If you're a friend. Respond thru email," Kelly posted while asking for assistance on the social media site.

Then, Kelly's arrest in November was under the suspicion of assault- the actress had allegedly assaulted her 61-year-old husband in their North Carolina home. Both were charged with assault and released on bond, according to Omg! Yahoo.
