DUI Bust -- "But I'm a Race Car Driver..."

10/29/2008 6:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Some chick named Ashley Van Dyke was busted on suspicion of DUI in Hollywood. Her fame status is considered "barely" at best -- but she tried to use it to get out of trouble anyway.

Cops nailed the former one-time SPEED TV host in West Hollywood late Monday night when she refused to cooperate with a deputy who was directing traffic. But after she was pulled over, sources say she felt the need to tell cops, "...but I'm a race car driver!"

Didn't matter -- 'cause we're told she failed the field sobriety test miserably and blew well over the legal BAC limit.

Dumbass alert! ALWAYS listen to the cops, especially if you're drunk! She so deserved to be busted. Hot mugshot tho.

A Sensible Person    

If her fame status is virtually non-existent, why is TMZ running this story? It's not considered non-existent anymore!

Carrie is a RELIGIOUS LIAR    

AVD Superfan # 1 is an idiot.

"All she wants to do is drive fast and look hot doing it." Wow....that is my goal as well.

"You don't even know her and should be a shamed of yourselves!" She DROVE DRUNK you MORON!

"The bible tells us to do un to others as you want them to treat you." The Bible also says a bunch of other things to...like not lie. I hate to tell you...but she ISN'T a race car driver. Getting behind the wheel of a fast car doesn't make you a race car driver.

"So if you can't deal with that then you don't deserve to see her race like the pro she is." No one has PAID to see her race. She isn't a PROFESSIONAL race car driver for ANY PROFESSIONAL racing organization.

"That cop SHOULD have let her do what she wanted to do." Oh wait. The cop should let her go...for a DUI? Are you STUPID? (Oh wait...you are).

If you're such a big fan of hers...maybe you want to do her community service for her. She'll probably be putting on a bright orange vest and hard hat...and will be modeling for Caltrans along a freeway near you.

AVD_IS_A_SKANK    

sorry, but AVD is the biggest poser/wannabe I have ever met. not only does she lack of charm, talent and/or class, she also has a egotistical personality (hence her speech to the LAPD). to the few AVD fans reading this: you only will be disappointed in her - she's nothing more than looks (and looks alone). she scammed her way through most of her "career" achieves:

yes, she was on the bullrun - she con'ed someone else to pay for her $15,000 entry fee.
yes, she was on the bullrun reality show (one of the worst TV show ever) and she was nothing more than a flag girl.
yes, she was also on SpeedTV reality show for race car drivers, yet she was so bad that they never picked her up for the following season.

until you've actually met her in person, please refrain from tell everyone how great she is.

The absolute worst time to get lippy with a cop, is when you've been drinking and driving.....

AVD Superfan is a loser    

AVD Superfan you are an idiot. I've been on a "rally" with Ashley before and she is reckless and a horrible driver. Just because some driving school pays for you to go on a rally which isn't even a real race does not mean you are a professional race car driver. Everyone hates Ashley and she knows it. Get a life.
