Reality star Shayne Lamas had decided to follow in the footsteps of such Hollywood role models as Paris Hilton, Nicole Richie, and Lindsay Lohan by driving under the influence. The 24-year-old star of Leave it to Lamas was arrested last Saturday for suspicion of driving under the influence after failing a Breathalyzer test.
Lamas, who rose to fame after winning the twelfth season of The Bachelor, confessed to E! that she willingly drove through a check-point after having one drink, thinking that she would pass the Breathalyzer test.
“I take full responsibility for my lack of judgment. I have always strived to be a role model for my friends, family and fans and have never nor will ever condone drinking and driving. I apologize for all those I have disappointed, including myself,” she said in a statement. Go to PopEater for more on this story.
Lamas is due in court on Dec. 9th to face the misdemeanor charges. (PopEater)
