(Newser) – Richard Dreyfuss' wife, Svetlana, was arrested earlier this month in an alleged drunk-driving hit-and-run, law enforcement sources reveal to TMZ. On June 2, Svetlana allegedly ran into a fence, severed a high-pressure water line, and then drove off, they say. San Diego County sheriff's deputies tracked her down two miles away and arrested her. She tells TMZ she only had a glass of wine and thinks she passed the field sobriety tests she was given, but the gossip site's sources say she was booked for both DUI and hit-and-run, and that the case has been sent to the DA's office. Her husband famously got sober in 1982 after crashing into a tree while driving drunk.
