Details regarding Ariana Biermann’s DUI arrest are surfacing, including the fact that she allegedly refused to take both a breathalyzer and a blood test, according to a police report obtained by Us Weekly.
Kim Zolciak-Biermann’s daughter, 20, was arrested in Georgia on Saturday, August 13, after colliding with another vehicle while driving. She was charged with driving drunk, underage possession/purchase of alcohol, and misdemeanor improper/erratic lane change according to US Magazine.
While Ariana’s lawyer has strongly rejected the charges, the police report obtained by Us claims that the Don’t Be Tardy alum was not sober based on his observations.
“I advised [Ariana] that I could smell the odor of an alcoholic beverage on her breath. She stated the odor was possibly from her clothing,” the officer detailed in the document. “Ariana stated she had smoked a THC vape pen the night before but did not drink.”
The police officer continued, “I conducted field sobriety evaluations with Ariana and observed signs of impairment. I observed that she had a noticeable sway during the evaluations,” adding that a fellow officer conducted a Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus (HGN) test and “observed four out of six clues.”
The report further alleged that when Ariana was asked “to provide a breath sample to the preliminary breath test. … she refused.” Ariana first agreed to a blood test but changed her mind after being taken to jail. She was released on bond later that day and plans to fight the charges, according to her lawyer, who issued a statement on Saturday.
“Ariana was involved in a minor fender bender. When police arrived on the scene, the investigating officer immediately initiated an investigation for DUI,” Ariana’s attorney, Justin Spizman, said in a statement at the time. “Despite Ariana’s constant invocation that she was upset and anxious from the minor accident, the officer incorrectly concluded she was impaired by alcohol. That was not the case. She wholly denies these allegations and intends to fight these charges because she is not guilty of them.”
Hudson McLeroy, Ariana’s on and off boyfriend, was also involved in the crash and was reportedly arrested on alcohol-related charges. He was free on bond.
