This weekend, after partying at a cast-mate’s birthday party, the “Hills” reality star Stephanie Pratt was arrested for a DUI. Officers issued field sobriety tests and breathalyzer test results stated Pratt had a blood alcohol level of .08% and a .09%, which put her at and above the legal limit. She was arrested and taken to jail and then released on $5,000 bail. As she was getting arrested, people in the streets saw her and started taking pictures, which led to a fight among on-lookers. No one was arrested for the fight.
Pratt had reportedly had substance abuse problems before moving to Los Angeles. Often, drinking is the first step that leads back to a destructive habit. Since this is Pratt’s first DUI, she will likely not face jail time and instead have to pay fees and possibly get her license revoked. Whether you live in Tustin, Lake Forest or Anaheim Hills, if you are charged with a DUI, call an experienced DUI defense attorney right away to assist you. The attorney may be able to fight the charges if there was an error in the breathalyzer equipment.
