Bridget Hall Contesting Drunk Driving Arrest

Posted: Updated:

Bridget Hall is contesting her arrest for driving while intoxicated last Sunday morning, Page Six reports. The supermodel was pulled over at 3:17 a.m. on August 29 in East Hampton, New York, and allegedly released on her own recognizance, meaning she promised to appear in court and answer a criminal charge. Now, Hall says that she wasn't drinking at all and has hired lawyer Salvatore Strazzullo to fight her case.

Hall told Page Six she would never drink and drive and that she was simply tired, adding, the police "asked me to do the sobriety tests, which went fine. When he asked me to do the Breathalyzer, I was happy to do it because I'd not had one drink that night....I was totally shocked when it registered positive." Hall is an East Hampton resident, having moved to the town last spring. Her court date is scheduled for September 30.

Hall is best-known for her Sports Illustrated shoots from the early aughts and walking the runway for Ralph Lauren, Chanel and Gucci, and while New York Magazine has her listed as mostly-retired, Hall is still signed to One Management.
