American Idol Bikini Girl, Katrina Darrell, Arrested for DUI

by at . Comments

Katrina Darrell, the American Idol contestant who rose to prominence in 2009 when she auditioned in a bikini and clashed with judge Kara DioGuardi, has been arrested for DUI.

As first reported by TMZ, Darrell was pulled over in Pomona at 12:16 am.m. PST today and allegedly told police she was on her way to a local hospital because her mom - who was sitting shotgun - had fallen down and injured herself.

The police let her go as a result... but she then ran a red light and crashed into another car!

The former Idol hopeful tried to flee the scene, was pulled over again by cops who smelled alcohol on her breath and proceeded to fail a field sobriety test by blowing somewhere between .15 and .17, twice the legal limit in California.

Sources say Darrell was crying throughout the ordeal and released around 6 a.m. from the police station. She may also face charges for the aforementioned hit-and-run.

All this AND our readers believe DioGuardi looks better in a bikini! Ouch.

BonnIe Cooter you are misinformed. The article incorrectly reports she was stopped before she crashed. That was not the case! You should not call an entire organization idiots without first hand knowledge!

The police in Pomona are idiots. They could not smell alcohol on her breath? They did not question the mother? Pomona only has two tiny hospitals. Probably to busy getting her address and setting up a good place for their break. Better check out the detectives, they usually have the protroll officers set up the 1st get together. Benn there, I know how it works.
