Stephanie Seymour Arrested For DUI
Stephanie Seymour was arrested for DUI on Friday, after getting into a car accident in Connecticut.
Seymour was driving a 2015 Range Rover in Greenwich when she allegedly came to a stop on an I-95 off-ramp. Instead of continuing to exit the highway, however, the supermodel went in reverse. The back-up led her to allegedly hit a vehicle that was on the ramp behind her.
Police were called to the scene, and while Seymour refused to take a field sobriety test, she allegedly had obvious signs of intoxication. According to TMZ, the star’s eyes were bloodshot and her balance unsteady. In addition, she allegedly smelled of alcohol.
She was ultimately taken into custody and booked for DUI. It’s unclear if her blood alcohol level was tested at the police station. A rep for Seymour did not immediately respond to a request for comment. UPDATE: Seymour was released from jail on a $500 bond.
Seymour is pictured above at a Chanel dinner during last year’s Tribeca Film Festival. She is, of course, best known for her modeling career, which took off in the 1980s and has included posing for the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. She’s also covered Vogue, and posed for Playboy and Victoria’s Secret. She remains married to billionaire Peter Brant, with whom she reconciled in 2010 after filing for divorce the year before.
