When TMZ broke the news that Teen Mom Farrah Abraham was arrested for a DUI, we couldn’t believe it. The 21-year-old reality TV star was pulled over by police officers on March 18 after allegedly making a wide turn and nearly hitting a police cruiser. At first the Teen Mom star denied the incident on Twitter, and then gave an exclusive interview to In Touch.
It seems, however, that telling In Touch her side of the story wasn’t enough. Farrah went on to speak with Harvey Levin of TMZ on TMZ Live to clear her name, but dug a bigger hole instead.
When Harvey asked Farrah about getting a .147 on her breathalyzer test (twice the legal limit), the Teen Mom star said she doesn’t deny drinking. Recalling the events of the night, Farrah said she and her sister went to a St. Patrick’s Day party where they both drank. Farrah went on to say that she was placed in a “bad situation” all because at first her sister refused to leave, and then decided to leave without her. Then, Farrah’s story gets a little wonky.
“At the time when I was approached by the police officers, I wasn’t even driving,” she starts. But then she says “I was only in my car turning the corner and parking my vehicle.”
But isn’t turning the corner and parking your vehicle driving? Farrah realizes that the car was in motion, but insists she was already parked when the police approached her.
“You don’t think you did anything wrong here?” Harvey asked.
“I don’t. Because I didn’t endanger anyone’s life,” Farrah replied.
A staffer named Mike asked Farrah if she thought it would be OK for drunk drivers to drive if it’s not a long distance. The momtrepreneur remarked “No, I really don’t,” but excused her short distance drive because she was doing it for her sister.
