Actress Yasmine Bleeth spent a night in jail after patrol officers found what they suspect was cocaine in her purse during their investigation of a car accident, police said.

No charges had been filed and no one was injured in the one-car accident Wednesday night, police said.

Bleeth, who lives in Los Angeles, has starred in television's "Baywatch" and "Nash Bridges."

Police said Bleeth, accompanied by a male passenger, drove off Interstate 94 and onto the freeway's median strip.

They said Bleeth acted intoxicated while the officers questioned her but didn't appear to be under the influence of alcohol. After she failed field sobriety tests, police searched her purse and discovered four syringes containing what police suspect was a liquid form of cocaine, plus a small plastic bag containing cocaine residue.

Bleeth could be charged with operating a motor vehicle under the influence of drugs, a misdemeanor, and possession of a narcotic, a felony that carries a prison sentence of one to seven years, police said.
