Stephanie Seymour ordered to attend to AA meetings

Stephanie Seymour has been ordered to attend Alcoholics Anonymous meetings twice a week.

The 47-year-old supermodel was arrested by police in Greenwich, Connecticut, for driving under the influence when she was seen at a stop sign at an off-ramp on the Interstate 95 highway putting her Range Rover into reverse and struck a Mercedes behind her, she then drove the wrong way up the road.

Seymour appeared at Connecticut Superior Court on Monday (04.04.16) to face charges of driving under the influence, unsafe backing and leaving the scene of an accident.

After offering a sincere apology for her actions, Judge Auden Grogins told her he would drop the charges but that he was ordering her to complete a state alcohol program and attend AA meetings twice a week.

Speaking in front of the judge, Seymour said: "I am incredibly ashamed that I did something that could have come out much worse."

Judge Grogins told her: "This could have turned out a lot worse. Someone could have been seriously hurt or killed, including yourself."

Prosecutor Steve Weiss said the mother-of-four was "severely intoxicated" and "didn't perform well on any of the roadside sobriety tests" when police stopped her.

A date has not yet been set as to when Seymour must begin her state alcohol program and AA meetings.
