Basketball Wives Reality Star Charged With DUI

Fame, fortune, and beauty are not enough to escape the wrath of a DUI breathalyzer result.  Nobody knows this better than, Sundy Carter, who provided a breathalyzer sample that revealed a breath test result of .18, over twice the legal DUI limit of .08.  Carter, known for multiple guest appearances on the hit reality TV show, Basketball Wives, was charged with DUI and was booked into the Glendale Police Department.

This past Memorial Day evening may have involved a little too much drinking and socializing for Sunday Carter, according to Los Angeles police reports, the 40 year-old reality star was seen swerving over a double yellow line and was driving westbound in the eastbound traffic lanes.  Law enforcement pulled Carter over around 1am Tuesday morning.  Officers suspected Carter of drunk driving, arrested her, and hauled her into the police station where they gave Carter the choice of providing a blood sample or a breath test sample to test for blood alcohol concentrations.  Carter chose to take the breath test.

Here in Washington State, law enforcement will not give an individual the choice of a blood sample or breath test sample when at the police department.  They only require a breath test.  If an individual feels that the police station’s breathalyzer results were inaccurate, that individual has the right to go to a hospital and pay for a blood draw that provides a much more accurate BAC (blood alcohol content) result.

Sundy Carter, ex-girlfriend of retired NBA player Larry Hughes, posted $10,000.00 in bail on Tuesday and was released. Her first court appearance was this morning at 8:30 for her arraignment where she was formally charged with DUI.  If you want to know more about DUI arraignments read our recent blog “What To Expect At A DUI Arraignment“.

Rumor has it that Sundy Carter will officially join the cast of Basketball Wives for season 3 and hopefully her DUI charge will not affect her full-time reality TV opportunity.
