"We've declined to file charges in that matter due to insufficiency of the evidence," Frank Mateljan of the Los Angeles City Attorney's Office confirmed on Monday.
Kerry was arrested after she allegedly committed a traffic violation. Officers then conducted a field sobriety test and placed her under arrest.
A blood alcohol test produced a reading of 0.06, under the Californian legal limit of 0.08, TMZ.com reported.
Under California law, individuals can still be prosecuted for DUI -- even if the level is less than 0.08 -- if a vehicle was judged to have been operated unsafely due to alcohol
Kerry, whose Democratic Senator father lost the 2004 election to George W. Bush, wrote and directed a short film in 2004 and had a bit part role in David Mamet's 2004 thriller Spartan.
