“Bachelor” Contestant Arrested for Drunk Driving

Anyone who has watched “The Bachelor” knows that they can expect some exciting back stories from the contestants. They also know that the first night of the show will be one of the best. The show, now in its 20th season, is undoubtedly one of the most popular on television. But just where do those bachelorettes come from, and what are their stories?

If you are a fan of reality television, you are well aware that people can be given any type of character the directors choose. With a few snips in the editing booth, a bachelorette can be made a superhero or a villain. So just how will new bachelorette Meagan Miller be cast?

One of the 28 women on the show, Miller described herself in her bio as someone who enjoys “BBQ’ing and drinking some beers.” It may come as no surprise, then, that Miller was arrested in 2014 for driving under the influence of alcohol. The charge was handed down in Texas after authorities pulled the woman over during a traffic stop. Miller was allegedly found to have slurred speech, glassy eyes and a smell of alcohol on her breath.

At 30 years old, Miller is certainly allowed to get out and enjoy herself. Her lifestyle choices may be hurting her in her quest for a husband: The bachelor, Ben Higgins, neglected to give Miller a rose during the first episode.

Miller or her representatives will appear in court on February 8 of this year to answer to her charges.
