Emmy-nominated As the World Turns actress Colleen Zenk Pinter (Barbara Ryan) was arrested last week on suspicion of driving while intoxicated.

The 57-year-old actress was pulled over by police in Wilton, Connecticut, for erratic driving and crossing into the oncoming lane of traffic around 1:00am on Thursday, April 1. Upon suspicion of her intoxication, police officers asked Pinter to submit to field sobriety tests, which she failed. Pinter was taken into custody and charged with DUI and improper lane usage.

The Norwalk Hour reports that Pinter had a blood alcohol count of .119, which is over the limit of .08.

The actress is scheduled to appear in court on April 15. The actress could face a $1,000 fine and up to three months in jail.

Pinter debuted on As the World Turns in 1978. In 2002, she was nominated for an Outstanding Supporting Actress Daytime Emmy

Yall are late! We were discussing this in the monthly ATWT last week. It's ironic because just a few episodes ago, Barbara got drunk and told Henry that she's not stupid enough to drive while drunk.

Anyways, the court date has passed, so I wonder what she got. It'd suck if she had to miss the last months of taping the show, but you reap what you sow, so...yeah. Isn't there some kind of thing where you can postpone your sentence if you're needed somewhere else, like at a job or as a legal guardian?

She'll most likely be fine. T.I. was out for 2 years after he was sentenced before he went to jail! lol. When will ATWT last tape? August, July? I dont expect her to go to court till at least June. If she does get locked up, ATWT could write Barbera out and have her leave town, with CP pretaping alot of stuff to give the character of Barbera some closure for the finale. If not that, do you think they would bother in recasting her?

    • I read those Y&R spoilers and thought it's funny that after years of all of us discussing Devon/Abby as a potential couple, NOW they want to go there?   I am intrigued by the Chance side of the storyline though I wish it was Justin Guston.   I see everyone saying Nick and Chelesa AGAIN, but I read that spoilers and thought Nick AND SALLY there which would make everyone (and Phyllis's) head explode.    I'm here for any Jill I can get.   And sad there is not enough Amanda and Imani there in this thread.   
    • Well, I'm happy to Bryton and especially Eileen up there at least. 
    • I am happy to see Amanda Setton at the top where she belongs.   Also love that Rebecca Herbst is one episode away from being in the top ten for a month and yearly. 
    • Happy to be entering the December episodes now. And since I didn't want to post it in the November thread...interesting how Drew coming back has up-ended the whole ELQ stocks again just when Valentin thought he was getting payback on Brooklyn. Can't say that does not intrigue me to see if Ned can get Scout's share back in house.    But I like for Qs tales. 
    • Now that I have to time to reply to THE EXITS...   JAX. I thought it said a LOT that he basically just faded away with no exit. And was it just me but was his whole talk with Carly so much meta? Like the people BTS were actually speaking about IR in general, not Jax. Cuz that whole talk was subtext.    JASON. Well...I thought it was well done surprisingly. Other than the actual explosion of the caverns. The aftermath though. I liked Drew vs Jason and kinda sad we won't get to see that going ahead. I even like that Carly the week after was speaking some of what was said here...how can they even believe he is gone when they just went through this with Sonny and 'Mike.' As expected, the show is now focusing on the mourning. And ugh on that...lol. So far the only reaction so far that I've cared for was Monica's. Though LW has been selling it.    OUTSIDE OF THAT...   CHASE IS THE DADDY. Well, I do like it on one hand. On the other hand, could you imagine if they had not backed away from this plot point back when he was going darker post Michael/Willow walk in at the bday party? At least this is coming from a good place to keep him as a good guy, but still...and I admit...I liked him punching Valentin. It worries me that this will probably get used to bring him and Brooklyn. I liked they were already coming together organcially without a gimmick.    THE OTHER DADDY. Yay for the Curtis's dad story coming back. Though I am now wondering what his agenda is. And if...dare I say it...does it tie into any way with Cyrus.
