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!

Only 1 DUI for Scott Disick?

In all of Scott Disick’s 29 years of life, could it be true, only 1 DUI charge for the “Keeping Up with The Kardashians” reality TV star?  It seems so!  The daddy of Kourtney Kardashian’s 2 babies, is known for wild nights of clubbing, heavy drinking, and outrageous behavior.  However, when it comes to DUI, Scott doesn’t do it anymore!  His one and only DUI charge happened years ago when he was under the legal age to consume alcohol.

According to an article on wetpaint.com, a youthful 18-year-old, Scott Disick, crashed his car in Riverhead, NY, just miles away from his Eastport residence.  During the accident investigation, New York police officers reported they could smell alcohol on Scott’s breath and had him perform the DUI field sobriety tests.  Disick failed the DUI field tests and was taken to jail.  Later in court, Scott pled guilty to the DUI charge.

Perhaps Disick learned his DUI lesson early on in life and consciously chooses not to DUI.  Or perhaps, Scott’s paid designated driver, his chauffeur, taking him from one night club to the next and then home early the next morning has kept Scott DUI free.  What ever the reason may be, Scott Disick has obviously made good decisions about not driving drunk or DUI!

Gibson Gets a DUI for Not Listening to LA Police!

Actor Thomas Gibson arrested for DUI this morning for disobeying the LAPD.

The “Criminal Minds” and “Dharma and Greg” actor, Thomas Gibson, was driving home at 1 am when he stopped for road blocks set up for a Los Angelas half marathon.  Police officials told Gibson that he could not proceed forward and must take an alternate route home.  Gibson ingnored the police and drove into the marathon route.

Idiot!  Rule number 1: follow law enforcements resonable requests, especially if you are possibly DUI!

Lucky for Thomas Gibson he didn’t endanger any of the marathon participants as they had already run  that portion of the road.  However, unlucky for Gibson, whom placed a huge target on his own back for disregarding the law, was pulled over by officers.  The police reported they could smell alcohol on his breath and charged him with DUI.  Gibson did do one thing right that night, he used his legal rights to refuse to take the DUI portable breath test.

TMZ.com reported Gibson’s bail had been set at $15,000 and that he was still in police custody.

Lesson learned… listen to the police and avoid DUI charges.
