Former Model Arrested for DUI

Stephanie Seymour, 47, was arrested for driving under the influence last week in Connecticut. The former model was arrested after backing her black Land Rover into a Mercedes.

According to reports, the responding officer smelled a strong odor of alcohol emanating from Seymour’s mouth while she was answering questions. He had to ask her multiple times to produce her license, registration and proof of insurance. He reported that she fumbled through her purse to find the documents before producing them.

He also made note that Seymour had bloodshot eyes and was unsteady on her feet when exiting her vehicle. Seymour refused to take any field sobriety tests and would not take a blood alcohol content test.

The model was ultimately arrested and charged with unsafe backing and driving under the influence. She was released on a $500 bond. Seymour did not respond to requests for comment, and she will appear in Stamford Superior Court sometime in February.
