Infamous "American Idol" bikini girl Katrina Darrell plans to fight all the charges against her stemming from her DUI arrest yesterday, saying she did not flee the scene of an accident and claiming she wasn't even drunk at the time!
As TMZ first reported, Darrell was busted just after midnight in Los Angeles on Friday for fleeing the scene of an accident and failing a breathalyzer test with blood alcohol level of twice the legal limit. Katrina had told police she was in a rush to get her mother to the hospital.
But Katrina's manager, Michael Blakey, tells TMZ Katrina was indeed taking her mother to the hospital because she had taken a nasty fall at home and was bleeding from the head.
Blakey said Katrina did not run a red light, as the cops said she did, and claims Katrina pulled over and called 911 when she realized she had been in an accident.
Katrina's manager also claims Katrina only had a couple of glasses of wine at dinner and has no idea how she failed a sobriety test at the scene. Blakey claims it took officers several tries to get a reading on her breathalyzer test at the station and only made her repeat it because "the test did not show the results that the police wanted."
Katrina plans on fighting the charges and her manager promises we'll be "seeing more of Katrina and her bikini soon!"
And let's be honest, that's all anyone cares about.
