Ariana Biermann, the daughter of reality star Kim Zolciak-Biermann, was detained at 1 a.m. on Saturday, August 13, for allegedly driving under the influence. According to TMZ, the 20-year-old was arrested at the Forsyth County Jail for “driving while intoxicated, improper/erratic lane changes, and underage possession/purchase of alcohol.” According to reports, the star youngster was freed on a $5,120 bail with a court date, but she disputes the claims and plans to fight them.
Kim Zolciak, Ariana’s mother, is well-known for her debut on The Real Housewives of Atlanta in 2008. Kim is married to Kroy Evan Biermann, a former American football player.
Ariana Biermann plans to defend her DUI accusations
Ariana Biermann’s team said that the influencer was involved in a “small fender collision” on Saturday and intends to contest the allegations. Their lawyer, Justin Spizman, stated:
“Ariana got engaged in a small car accident. When the police came, the investigating officer promptly launched a DUI inquiry. Despite Ariana’s repeated assertions that she was disturbed and nervous as a result of the small collision, the officer wrongly determined she was intoxicated.”
“That was not true. She categorically rejects these claims and plans to defend them since she is not guilty of them.”
Ariana was reportedly joined by her on-again, off-again beau, Hudson McLeroy, at the time of the incident. Hudson was also charged with “driving under the influence, giving alcohol to a juvenile, and breaking the terms of his restricted driving license.” He was allegedly in the passenger seat when the authorities arrested them. Hudson has also been freed on bail, according to TMZ.
