Does “Bikini Girl” from “American Idol” Need California DUI Class?

by: Mike Miller

They say there are always two sides to every story. Perhaps that is the case for “Bikini Girl.”  Those of you who watch “American Idol” as avidly as I do, remember bombshell Katrina Darrell.

Darrell was arrested and charged with both driving under the influence (DUI) and fleeing the scene of the crime. According to TMZ, the infamous "American Idol" bikini girl plans to fight all the charges against her stemming from her DUI arrest, saying she did not flee the scene of an accident in Los Angeles and claiming she wasn't even drunk at the time!

How could the cops have been so wrong?

Of course, like a majority of DUI incidents, this one occurred during the witching hours – after 12AM.

Darrell’s excuse for fleeing the scene of an accident was that she was rushing her mother to the hospital. When police finally caught up with her she failed a breathalyzer test with a blood alcohol level of twice the legal limit. According to “Bikini Girl” she was taking her mother to the hospital because she had taken a nasty fall at home and was bleeding from the head. 

Her attorney claims that police are mistaken in her running a red light, as the cops said she did, and claims Katrina pulled over and called 911 when she realized she had been in an accident.

Katrina's manager also claims Katrina only had a couple of glasses of wine at dinner and has no idea how she failed a sobriety test at the scene. 

Katrina plans on fighting the charges and her manager promises we'll be "seeing more of Katrina and her bikini soon!"

Do you smell something fishy here? I sure do. While seeing her in a bikini is what we all want, if found guilty of the charges, her denials exacerbate the situation. I would hope she takes an California alcohol awareness class and keeps alcohol from poisoning her beautiful body!
