Amy Locane, Mugshot

This is not the way a celeb wants to get her name back in the news.

Amy Locane, one of the original denizens of the O.G. Melrose Place, has been charged with second-degree vehicular homicide for allegedly causing a fatal DUI crash last night in Montogomery, N.J.

The married mother of two was arraigned in Somerset County court Monday afternoon and bail was set at $50,000. She's also charged with third-degree assault by auto and is facing a maximum 10-year prison sentence if convicted on both counts.

According to court documents, Locane admitted to police that she had several glasses of wine before getting behind the wheel Sunday.

At around 9 p.m., her 2007 Chevy Tahoe hit the passenger side of a 2010 Mercury Milan as it was turning into a driveway, killing the female passenger, Helene Seeman, at the scene and seriously injuring the driver of the car, Fred Seeman. He is listed in critical condition at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick, according to the New Jersey Star-Ledger.

And, per prosecutors, that night Locane had already rear-ended a car and drove off before the other driver could call police, just a few miles away from the fatal crash site.

Officers said that they smelled alcohol at the scene and that Locane's speech was slurred and her eyes glassy. She was arrested and taken to a nearby hospital for a blood-alcohol test.
