The 20-year-old social media celebrity was charged with many misdemeanors, including one count of drunk driving, an unlawful or irregular lane change, and underage alcohol possession or purchase in Forsyth County, Georgia, according to public records acquired by People.
According to the site, Ariana was later freed after posting a $5,120 bond.
According to People, Ariana was allegedly riding in the car with her 20-year-old boyfriend Hudson McLeroy. He was also detained on suspicion of DUI, providing alcohol to an underage person, and driving in violation of the terms of his restricted license.
Following the incident, Ariana was charged with DUI, Justin Spizman, Ariana’s lawyer, confirmed to E! News.
In a statement, he stated, “We deny she was in any way impaired by any chemical.”
Also from him: “Ariana was hurt in a rather small collision. The investigating officer started a DUI inquiry as soon as the police got on the scene. Despite Ariana’s repeated claims that the little collision had left her angry and anxious, the officer wrongly assumed she had consumed alcohol and was therefore intoxicated. That wasn’t the situation.”
She vehemently denies these accusations, and her attorney continued, “She intends to defend these charges because she is not guilty of them.”
