Troubled actress Lori Pettywhose career nosedived after a 2009 DUI bust — was caught by bar-hopping in a boozy binge that started at 8:30 a.m. in the middle of the week!

The 53-year-old Orange Is the New Black star shocked onlookers with her epic early-morning bender on Tuesday, Sept. 27.

Tatted-up Petty — who rose to fame as Keanu Reeves' love interest in the 1991 crime caper Point Breakkicked off her binge at The Mercedes Bar and Grill in Marina Del Rey, Calif.

There, she was seen chugging back three large glasses of wine before heading to the nearby bistro The Terrace Cafe — and slamming back four more drinks!

During her four-hour booze-a-thon, Petty spilled cocktails on her shirt and ripped-up sweatpants, and pawed a random hunk in a sloppy attempt at flirting.

She finally stumbled home around lunchtime, looking extremely bleary-eyed!

Petty seemed destined for mainstream stardom after playing Geena Davis's bratty baseball-playing sister in 1992's A League of Their Own.

But her movie career never really took off — and on May 30, 2009, she was arrested on suspicion of DUI after she hit a skateboarder with her car in Venice, Calif. She eventually pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor charge of DUI, and received five years of informal probation. She was also ordered to get outpatient treatment, attend AA classes and pay up to $1,500 in fines.

Petty's career got back on track in 2014 when she landed the gig on OITNB — but she still seems to be hitting the bottle hard!
