Ariana Biermann, Kim Zolciak’s daughter, reportedly denied driving while intoxicated on Saturday, August 13, after being detained for a DUI in Georgia. According to papers acquired by TMZ, the 20-year-old social media celebrity was arrested on 3 different counts: misdemeanour DUI driving while intoxicated, misdemeanour improper/erratic lane change, and misdemeanour underage alcohol possession/purchase. The accusations were refuted by Ariana’s attorney, Justin Spizman, in a statement to HollywoodLife.
“Ariana got engaged in a little collision. The investigating officer launched a DUI inquiry as soon as the police got on the scene, according to the statement. “Despite Ariana’s repeated claims that the little collision had agitated and worried her, the officer wrongly assumed drinking had affected her. That wasn’t the situation. She vehemently refutes these accusations and says she will contest the charges since she is innocent.
According to TMZ, Ariana’s on-again, off-again boyfriend, 20-year-old Hudson McLeroy, was also detained at the same time on alcohol-related charges and seems to have been in the car with her. In addition to DUI, Hudson was also charged with providing or obtaining alcohol while underage and driving without a licence. Ariana and Hudson are still awaiting their court dates after being allegedly freed on bail.
As of right now, Ariana has kept quiet about the event in public. Her most recent social media picture, which was six days ago, showed the micro-influencer posing in lingerie in a poorly lit room. She wrote “I’m a lovely mess” as the caption for the obscene photo.
This is apparently Ariana’s first arrest. She started appearing with her mother Kim on The Real Housewives of Atlanta in 2008 when she was six years old. By the time Kim left the illustrious Bravo franchise in 2012, she had already begun filming the spin-off Don’t Be Tardy For The Party, which followed Kim and her large family, including Ariana, Brielle, her husband Kroy Biermann, and their four children: KJ, 11, Kash, 9, and twins Kaia and Kane, 8, as well as Kim and Kroy. Ariana and Brielle were both adopted by Kroy in 2013.
