Al Pacino's daughter arrested for drunken driving

NEW YORK (Reuters) - The 21-year-old daughter of actor Al Pacino was arrested in Manhattan for driving while intoxicated, police said on Sunday.

Julie Pacino was arrested shortly around 1:30 a.m. at a DUI (driving under the influence of alcohol) checkpoint on the border of the Soho and West Village neighborhoods. She was later arraigned and released on her own recognizance, New York Police Department spokesman James Duffy said.

Her exact blood-alcohol level was not immediately available, but People magazine quoted Duffy as saying "She had bloodshot, watery eyes, slurred speech and the strong smell of alcohol on her breath," and admitted to drinking three beers and smoking marijuana prior to entering the checkpoint.

After learning of the arrest, Al Pacino, a multi-Oscar nominee who won best actor for "Scent of a Woman," rushed back from Los Angeles where he has been filming a biopic on music producer Phil Spector.

The daughter of Pacino and acting coach Jan Tarrant, Julie Pacino attended UCLA, where she was a member of the softball team.
