CHICAGO BEARS RADIO -- WBBM Newsradio 780 "Traffic on the 8's"

“Teen Mom” star Farrah Abraham openly admitted to drinking and driving before her DUI arrest last week … but she’s STILL not convinced she did anything wrong.

Omaha (Nebraska) police arrested Farrah Abraham for DUI at 1:20 a.m. March 10, 2013 at 11 East Howard Street after she parked in a No Parking zone. Her green 2012 Fiat 550c was towed to a police holding area.

Police attempted to give Farrah Abraham the breathalyzer test three times after she failed a roadside sobriety test. Farrah Abraham reportedly ‘put her teeth onto the tube — biting down on the tube — and didn’t provide a sufficient breath sample each time. The police gave up on the breathalyzer test and decided to administer a blood alcohol test instead. Her blood alcohol level was reported to 0.147. impairment at 0.147 involves slowed reflexes, delayed reaction time, dysfunctional gross motor control, staggering, and slurred speech. The blood alcohol level also is correlated with over-expression, emotional swings, anger or sadness, and boisterousness.

Earlier in the day Farrah tweeted fans about her day of drinking and asking them to send her beer (if true, tweet since removed). Another tweet shared tips on how to prevent a hangover.


“Teen Mom” is a reality television series which aired from December 8, 2009 until August 28, 2012 on MTV. “Teen Mon” followed the lives of four girls from the first season of “16 and Pregnant” as they navigate their first years of motherhood.

The “Teen Mom” series aired a total of four seasons. The pilot episode was the network’s highest-rated premiere in over a year, with 2.1 million total viewers. The episodes followed the lives of Farrah Abraham and her daughter Sophia Laurent Abraham, whose father, Derek Underwood, was killed in a car accident on December 28, 2008 at age 18. Passenger Zachary Mendoza, 18, was also killed in the crash. A third passenger in the car, Dustin Congdon, 18, survived the crash.

Mendoza’s mother, Jackie Kennedy, 38, was arrested after the crash and charged with three counts of procuring alcohols to minor on December 28, 2008. Kennedy was captured on surveillance video buying alcohol at a No Frill Supermarket. A 1.5 ounce bottle of Skyy vodka that she allegedly purchase for her son and his friends was found at the crash scene. Underwood lost control of the vehicle, but was found to have a blood-alcohol level below the legal limit. In Nebraska, DUI penalties apply if chemical testing indicates a BAC over .02 percent.

In many countries, including Brazil, Czech Republic, Israel, Russia and Saudi Arabia, it is illegal at any age to have any measurable alcohol in the blood while driving.

In many countries, including China, Poland, Puerto Rico and Sweden, it is illegal at any age to have measurable alcohol as low as 0.02% in the blood while driving.
