Stephanie Seymour completes alcohol program; charges dropped
(AP) - Former supermodel Stephanie Seymour had drunken driving and other charges erased from her record Tuesday after she completed a yearlong program that included treatment for alcohol abuse.
The 48-year-old former Victoria's Secret and Sports Illustrated model did not attend the brief hearing in Stamford Superior Court.
Police said Seymour backed her limited edition Land Rover into a Mercedes Benz on an exit ramp off Interstate 95 in her hometown of Greenwich in January 2016. Officers said she refused sobriety tests, was unsteady, had bloodshot eyes and smelled of alcohol.
On the same day, police said, Seymour also crashed into a utility pole near her home and left the scene.
Drunken driving and evading responsibility charges were dropped Tuesday under the state's accelerated rehabilitation and alcohol education programs for first-time offenders.
