“Teen Mom”, Farrah Abraham, Defends Her DUI In Blog Post

“Teen Mom”, Farrah Abraham, Defends Her DUI In Blog Post

The Stir made strong comments against Farrah Abraham’s recent blog post regarding her DUI arrest, stating that it will make you curse the public school system and fear for your children’s education. Abraham, a TV personality from MTV’s “Teen Mom”, outrageously defended her recent DUI in the post and blamed her arrest on the police officer that stopped her.  She blogged the following: “When the alcohol content is shown, which I did not see personally, it was .145. That is a number of legal intoxication, no doubt, but like I mentioned I know how to handle myself and I was concerned about safety. So I was released and the asswhole cop who kept trying to make everything worse for myself was shouting loudly ‘I’m shocked she only blew that, she should be in jail’- ya what a dumbass.” 

Abraham’s blog post was criticized for extremely poor usage of grammar. In addition to being judged as an uneducated individual, she was bashed for failing to take responsibility of her actions and minimizing them. Abraham evidently tried to blame the legal officer for her DUI arrest. Media critics fear that Abraham will eventually learn her lesson the hard way.

shauna millerShauna Miller, a Las Vegas Stripper, was charged with felony DUI after being involved in a deadly crash on March 23, 2013 in Las Vegas, Nevada. According to the police report, the incident took place at the intersection of Spring Mountain and Wynn Rd. around 7 in the morning. Miller was driving southbound on Spring Mountain when she struck the drivers side of a Ford Escort turning right at the Wynn intersection. The driver of the Escort, James Joseph White, was killed as a result of the collision while his 2 year-old son sitting in a car seat sustained minor injuries. According to officers at the scene, the Vegas stripper displayed several signs of intoxication such as constricted pupils, glassy eyes and a slight odor of alcohol.

When police asked Miller if she had been drinking before the accident, she told them that she had consumed 2 beers while working as a dancer at the Spearmint Rhino. The Vegas stripper told police that she drank her last beer around 3 or 4 am and that she had also taken a Xanax Pill the night before, which she did not have a prescription for. Police proceeded to give Miller a series of field sobriety tests, which she failed, resulting in her arrest for DUI. Police also noted that investigators believe White’s Escort was headed southbound as opposed to turning right as Miller recalls it. Investigators also saw no signs of pre-impact braking from the Miller’s Hummer, even though the Vegas stripper claimed that she tried to brake and avoid a collision. According to the police report, investigators are still trying to determine who ran the red light during the accident.

Uso was arrested for that first DUI after an officer saw Uso driving down the wrong side of a street at 3 in the morning.

The WWE has been known to step in and penalize some of their wrestlers for incidents occurring outside of the ring, however, they have only usually done so when a wrestler has been involved in DUI pertaining to possession of drugs since the company mandates drug testing. Uso could be safe from any action on behalf of the WWE at the moment since “WrestleMania” is just on the horizon. Another wrestler, Jack Swagger, was charged with DUI and drug possession on February 19, 2013. After Swagger’s arrest, the WWE commented saying, “Mr. Swagger is responsible for his own personal actions“.
