GREENWICH, Conn. — Stephanie Seymour is going to need to be on model behavior now that she’s facing charges after a DUI arrest. The Sports Illustrated and Victoria’s Secret model was arrested Friday in Connecticut, according to a police report.
An officer responded after the 47-year-old backed her black Land Rover into a Mercedes at a highway stop sign, according to the report.
The officer noted Seymour’s bloodshot eyes and a “strong odor” of alcohol coming from her mouth as she answered questions.
“After six or seven requests for her license, registration and insurance, she finally was able to fumble through her purse, as she handed over her Connecticut driver’s license, along with a credit card,” the officer wrote in the report.
Seymour was asked to exit the vehicle to perform field sobriety tests, but was “unsteady on her feet” and “her breath smelled of an alcoholic beverage,” the report said.
She refused all tests and was arrested and charged with “driving under the influence” and “unsafe backing.”
She was released on a $500 bond and is scheduled to appear in Stamford Superior Court in early February.
