MEMPHIS, TN -

(WMC-TV) - Denise Oher went before a judge Monday morning to face DUI and disorderly conduct charges after she was pulled over by police last week.

Oher was arrested after police say they found her behind the wheel with a half bottle of vodka in her hand, smelling like alcohol. She was charged with DUI, disorderly conduct, and driving with a suspended license.

It was not even one year ago that Oher spoke exclusively to Action News 5's Joe Birch about recovery, and being clean and sober after an addiction to crack cocaine.

"One day at a time. It took a long time to know what that term meant," she said in February 2013. "That addiction is very hard to just stop. You have to work on it. You have to pray and you have to be committed to it and you have you want to change your life from that."

Now, Oher is answering to a judge and the judicial system. Her bond is set at $7,500. She is scheduled to appear in court again on November 5.
