Former 'Bachelor' Contestant Arrested for DUI in Florida

A former bachelorette on the television show ‘The Bachelor’ was arrested early Thursday morning for driving under the influence in Tampa, Florida. Maribel Delgado was stopped around 12:45 am after a police officer suspected impairment. Delgado admitted to having been drinking though refused to submit to a breath test to check blood alcohol content. She was taken into custody and booked on misdemeanor Florida DUI charges. Delgado posted $500 cash bond and was released around 10:00 am.

The Cuban-born Delgado appeared in two ‘Bachelor’ contestants. In season six of the ABC television show, she won a proposal from pro bass fisherman Byron Velvick. The two did not marry, and then ended the relationship in 2009.

Delgado, 42, is a former cheerleader for the Tampa Bay Bucaneers NFL football team. She has two prior alcohol related arrests on her record. In November 2007 she was charged with battery while intoxicated after hitting her fiance in the mouth. One year later she got into a drunken brawl at a Texas nightclub that included a fight with police.
