Jenna Jameson has assumed the pole position, and not in a good way.

The ex–porn queen has been officially charged with DUI after crashing her car into a street pole last month during an allegedly boozy fender-bender in a Los Angeles suburb.

The Orange County D.A.'s office confirms to E! News that the 38-year-old has been charged with three misdemeanor counts: one misdemeanor of driving under the influence of alcohol and drugs, one misdemeanor of having a blood alcohol level of 0.08 or higher, and one misdemeanor of driving a motor vehicle with a suspended license.

Jameson, who successfully reinvented herself in the late '90s as a porn mogul and struck gold with a gangbusters Internet hub and a best-selling tell-all, was popped on May 25 after slamming her SUV into a post. No other vehicles were involved in the fender-bender, and a police officer told E! News that Jameson, whose blood alcohol level was 0.13, "displayed objective signs of intoxication."

She suffered minor injuries but declined any medical attention.

If convicted, Jameson could serve anywhere from probation to a year in jail. Her arraignment is set for Tuesday in Orange County.

Jameson and her tempestuous baby daddy, UFC brawler Tito Ortiz, recently sought an emergency restraining order against a friend who, they allege, repeatedly stalked them, stole from them and frightened their children.
