Farrah Abraham “Teen Mom” Reality Star, Charged with DUI for Being Sick?

MTV’s “Teen Mom” reality star, Farrah Abraham, age 21, was arrested and charged with DUI (driving under the influence) last Monday at 1 in the morning.  When police asked Farrah to perform the DUI breathalyzer test, she failed repeatedly until one test finally read .147, almost twice the legal DUI limit in Nebraska.  Days later, Farrah spoke out to InTouch defending herself, ““Because I’m sick, I could not give an accurate breathalyzer test, due to coughing and shortage of breath.”

Farrah, mother of 4-year-old Sophia, who had been celebrating St. Patty’s Day with her sisters by sipping on some good ol drinks, wanted to go home around 12:30 AM.  Her sisters didn’t want to leave, so Farrah decided to go get the car from the parking lot and pick them up at the front door.  According to officials, Farrah made an uncontrolled wide turn and almost rear ended a police cruiser.  Police pulled Farrah over and asked her to take the DUI breath test and to perform the DUI field sobriety tests, both of which Farrah failed.

Farrah is adamant that she was not DUI that evening.  She continues to believe in magical shamrocks and leprechauns and that she failed the DUI breath test due to illness and flu-like symptoms.

Farrah’s “Because I”m sick..,” defense is not reasonable.  Medication could have a slight effect on the DUI breathalyzer’s reading but nothing to the extent of a high reading such as .147.  Farrah was most likely DUI, end of story!

Busted! DUI Celeb Moms!

I just came across a great article on The Stir that hot listed 6 celebrity moms for getting in trouble with the law and for having ugly mug shots.  Of the 6 ladies mentioned, my favorites were Moms charged with DUI, Heather Locklear, Tracy Gold, Jamie Pressly, and Chef Cat Cora.

A brief recap of the DUI charges… In 2008, Heather Locklear was charged with DUI on prescription drugs, the charges were later reduced to reckless driving.   Not so lucky for Locklear, the former Melrose Place actress, was her police mug shot that was so unforgettable it flooded all gossip avenues.

Tracy Gold, Growing Pains actress, flipped her SUV and rolled it down an embankment while DUI.  Her husband and children were also in the car, all suffered injuries except the four-month old baby.  A seriously bad decision by that Mama in 2004, and I’m sure she will never put her family in that kind of jeopardy again, YIKES!

Actress and mother, Jamie Pressly, was arrested and charged with DUI in 2011 after being stopped for a traffic violation.  Another unforgiving a celeb mug shot, poor Jamie Pressly, so pretty when sober.

Most recently, Chef Cat Cora, arrest and charged with DUI in June 2012 for rear-ending a car while leaving a tavern.  Police reported the famous Chef had a breath test twice the legal limit of .08.

Moms deserve to have a drink or two or more, however as we know they too must remain responsible and make good decisions like everyone else, call cabs or designate drivers etc.  Check out the article in full and view the ugly Mom mug shots, FUN! “6 Celebrity Moms Who Were Arrested for Being Bad (Photos)”  www.thestir.cafemom.com.
