When someone gets a San Diego DUI, it is usually not plastered on the
news unless someone has been harmed. However, as soon as a celebrity obtains a San Diego DUI, everyone hears about it. Well, another celebrity has obtained a DUI this
month. Although it is reported that she may have been in a collision, it
is reported that the case is at the District Attorney’s office to determine
whether formal charges will be issued.
What does this mean
Just remember that anyone can get a San Diego DUI, whether you are a
celebrity or not. So, although everyone makes mistakes, try to plan ahead and
arrange for a designated driver, or get a taxi, rather than risking your life,
money, or other’s lives.
Supermodel Stephanie Seymour has been charged with DUI after a crash on Interstate 95 in Greenwich, Connecticut on Friday night, authorities said.
Seymour, 47 of Greenwich, backed up into another vehicle while at a stop sign in Greenwich on an I-95 south exit ramp, Connecticut State Police investigators said.
Troopers responded to the crash around 9:25 p.m. on Friday and discovered Seymour’s black Land Rover sideways at the top of the ramp and a white Mercedes behind it.
Seymour’s eyes were bloodshot, she was “unsteady on her feet” and her breath smelled like alcohol, according to state police.
When asked to take a field sobriety test, she refused and it also took six or seven requests for her to fumble through her purse and show state police her license, according to investigators.
State police from Troop G barracks in Bridgeport charged her with driving under the influence of alcohol and unsafe backing.
Seymour, who appeared in several Sports Illustrated swimsuit editions and was a model for Victoria’s Secret, made headlines in 2009 when she went through a bitter divorce with then husband, publishing mogul Peter Brant.
The divorce proceedings turned ugly, with Brant claiming Seymour was an unfit mother for the couple’s three children. He also accused her of submitting “invalid” urine samples in an attempt to prove she was not on drugs or alcohol.
After Seymour’s arrest on Monday, she was released on a $500 non-surety bond. Her agency could not immediately be contacted for comment.
Seymour is scheduled to appear in Stamford Superior Court on Feb. 2.
