Supermodel Stephanie Seymour was arrested for DUI on Jan. 15 after backing her Land Rover SUV into a Mercedes near a ramp to the Interstate 95 in Greenwich, Connecticut.
According to the state police, the former Victoria’s Secret model had bloodshot eyes and smelled like alcohol. After refusing to take field sobriety tests, she was taken down to the station and booked on DUI charges. But, that was only the beginning for Seymour.
She was arrested again three days later by Greenwich police after the authorities claimed that about an hour before the accident with the Mercedes, she crashed her SUV into a utility pole near her residence.
She reportedly left the scene after slamming into the pole.
Seymour Appears in Court
The 47-year-old bombshell appeared in court for her arraignment on Tuesday in Stanford, Connecticut, dressed in black looking as put together as a Kennedy. She informed the judge that she had applied to an alcohol counseling program.
While Seymour chose not to comment on her case, her attorney, Phillip Russell mentioned that she hopes to enter an alcohol education program, which is usually an option for certain first-DUI offenders.
“This is an ordinary first-offender drunk driving case where our experience is that most first offenders do not drive drunk again,” Russell said. Further adding that he does not think that she has a drinking problem.
Seymour is scheduled to return to court on April 4; at that time, the judge will decide whether or not she’ll be allowed to participate in the program.
The 5’ 10” beauty is married to billionaire Peter Brant. Back in the 80s and 90s, the former Victoria’s Secret model was one of the world’s most famous models. She’s also known for dating Guns N’ Roses singer Axl Rose, and for starring in the band’s video “November Rain.”
