Jason Priestly DUI Chelsea Lately


Jason Priestley dished on Wednesday’s “Chelsea Lately” about how his “Beverly Hills, 90210” fame helped him once befriend a group of Russians in jail. Priestley, who once spent five days behind bars for driving under the influence in 1999, bonded with Chelsea Handler over her past DUI (video below).

The “90210” star gave the host a high five, saying “What self-respecting Los Angeleno doesn’t have a DUI under their belt?” “The more important thing is not to get two,” added Handler. “You get one,” Priestley agreed. “Lesson learned.”

Priestley went on to talk about being recognized as his famous television character, Brandon Walsh, while in the slammer. Video is no longer available.
