American Idol Winner Phillip Phillips’ Mom Arrested for DUI!

American Idol winner Phillips Phillips is probably singing the blues today, instead of his signature hit “Home,” after his mom was arrested on DUI charges. Sheryl Phillips was stopped by police in Albany, Georgia, after officers say she was driving erratically.

According to TMZ, Phillip Phillips’ mom was swerving all over several lanes of traffic before she was pulled over. After observing her following the traffic stop, Police reportedly had reason to suspect Sheryl Phillips was under the influence of drugs or alcohol. After failing a field sobriety test, she was arrested and taken into custody.

Phillip Phillips’ mother was first transported to the hospital, according to TMZ, where doctors checked her out and found her fit enough to be hauled off to face charges. She has reportedly been booked into a Dougherty County jail.

We have to wonder if Phillip Phillips’ mom was drowning her sorrows a bit too much after allegedly splitting up with his father last week. Since the American Idol Season 11 winner has refused in the past to help out his parents financially after their pawn shop closed, it’s anyone’s guess who will be paying the bail to get momma out of jail.
