(Newser) – Former madam to the stars Heidi Fleiss was busted yesterday after a traffic stop and charged with driving without a license, driving under the influence, and possessing prescription medicine without a prescription, the Las Vegas Sun reports. Fleiss had "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," said a statement from county officials.

Her passenger allegedly had marijuana with him and was "under the influence of a controlled substance," officials said. Bail for Fleiss, who currently owns the Dirty Laundry in Nevada, has been set at $1400. Fleiss, 42, last made big news when she and her little black book were busted for running a call-girl operation serving Tinseltown movers and shakers.
