2nd DUI for “Bearing Sea Gold” Celeb

Alaska, the land of “The Final Frontier” was the location of Shawn Pomrenke’s second DUI arrest.  Pomrenke, star actor on Discovery Channel’s hit show “Bearing Sea Gold:  Under the Ice,”  was pulled over by law enforcement for speeding over 100 mph and later charged with DUI after blowing over the legal DUI limit.

Pomrenke’s need for speed lead to his November arrest.  Police reports indicate Pomrenke was traveling at chart topping speeds of 102 mph, along Nome, Alaska highways.  Police also noted his failure to use his signal while changing lanes.

After pulling Pomrenke over, Police suspected Pomrenke of drunk driving and asked him to take the portable breathalyzer test.  Pomrenke blew almost twice the legal limit, registering a result of .156.  The DUI legal limit in Alaska is .08, the same as Washington State.

He was arrested, his car was impounded, and he was taken to jail where he was charged with DUI.

To make matters worse, the reality TV star should have had an ignition interlock device installed in his car preventing him from driving under the influence, a court order from the first DUI he acquired a year ago.  Pomrenke can now expect to have “failure to comply with court orders” added to his new DUI charge.

Pomrenke’s first DUI was quite serious.  He hit a pedestrian and fled the scene of the crime, a big NO NO!  He was sentenced to 180 days in jail but only served less than weeks in the slammer… awhhh the power of being a local celebrity.

Pomrenke has a tough case ahead of him due to his breath test results and recent history of DUI.  It is definitely in Shawn Pomrenke’s best interest to hire a reputable DUI criminal defense attorney to fight for him.

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.
