PAHRUMP, NV (FOX5) -

Former Hollywood madam and Pahrump resident Heidi Fleiss was arrested early Tuesday morning, charged with DUI and a host of other violations.

The Nye County Sheriff's Office said detectives spotted Fleiss' 2010 Toyota Cruiser on State Route 160 about 3:30 a.m.

A records check showed the vehicle registration was suspended and that Fleiss did not have a driver's license.

When detectives pulled Fleiss, 47, over, they discovered four ounces of marijuana in the vehicle and said Fleiss appeared to be under the influence of marijuana. Fleiss failed a field sobriety test.

Detectives also discovered a large amount of cash in the vehicle, which they seized as part of the investigation.

Fleiss is charged with DUI, possession of marijuana with intent to sell, driving without a license, driving with suspended registration and driving with no insurance.

She was booked into the Nye County Sheriff's Office Detention Center pending bail.

In August, Fleiss was found with nearly 400 marijuana plants in her Pahrump home.
