*The Memorial Day weekend was not a good one for Sundy Carter.
Theybf.com reports that Carter was arrested early Monday morning for DUI. According to Tahnee Lightfoot, a spokeswoman for the Glendale, CA Police Department, the reality TV fixture was pulled over for crossing a double yellow line. Carter allegedly slurred her words during the stop as her breath reeked of alcohol.
Although she was booked for a DUI and for suspicion of being an unlicensed driver after blowing twice the legal limit (.18 percent) during breath test, Carter was released Tuesday after posting the $10,000 bail.
After her arrest Carter issued a statement obtained by HipHollywood.com that addressed her ordeal. According to the “Basketball Wives LA” star, the incident represented a “lack of judgment,” one that has resulted in a vow she made to “to never make this mistake again”.
“Drinking and driving is an extremely serious offense, and I take full responsibility for my lack of judgment on Monday night,” Carter said in the statement. “I thank God that I did not harm anyone else or myself and the idea of what could’ve happened was definitely a wake up call for me.
“Everyday I strive to become a better example for my family, friends and fans, the decision I made is far from one that I’m proud of. I vow to never make this mistake again and I truly apologize to those I have disappointed,” she continued. “I hope my lesson can serve as an example to others that it’s far more important to have a designated driver, being responsible is key- it can become the difference between life and death.”
Carter returns to court on Thursday to answer for the charges.
