Actress Yancy Butler, who starred in the canceled TNT series "Witchblade," was ordered Monday to enter a substance abuse program after her weekend arrest in Florida on a disorderly intoxication charge.

Butler, 33, was taken to jail Saturday after cars had to swerve to avoid hitting her as she wandered in and out of traffic, police said. She was charged with disorderly intoxication and resisting an officer without violence.

She previously was arrested Jan. 2 after a fight at her uncle's Hauppauge, N.Y., home. The fight allegedly involved Butler's father, Joe, the former drummer for the '60s folk-rock band the Lovin' Spoonful. She was charged with criminal contempt for violating an order of protection, and two counts of harassment.
