'Miss Howard Stern'

BUSTED For DUI

'I Didn't Know I Hit That Car'

Andrea Ownbey mug shot

Andrea Ownbey -- aka the reigning 'Miss Howard Stern' pageant winner -- was arrested for DUI earlier this month ... after cops say she drunkenly smashed into another car and didn't even realize it.

According to the police report, obtained by TMZ ... 29-year-old Ownbey -- who's been Miss Howard Stern since 2002 -- hit another car on the streets of Chattanooga, Tennessee sometime after 10pm on October 8.

A cop who happened to be in the area, claims he heard the accident and rushed to the scene -- only to find Ownbey in her car ... reeking of booze ... and fumbling to put her cell phone back together.

In the report, the cop states, "[Ownbey] was not aware that she had been in a traffic crash."

The officer claims Ownbey admitted to drinking two glasses of wine before getting behind the wheel ... so he administered a field sobriety test ... and she bombed.

And to make matters worse, cops say they found a small baggie of weed in the car ... as well as a weed pipe and a variety of prescription drugs.

According to the police report, Ownbey was transported to a nearby hospital -- where she took a breathalyzer test ... and blew a .178 ... way over the legal limit, .08.

Once she was medically cleared, Ownbey was taken to a nearby jail where she was booked for DUI, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of a controlled substance and driving while in possession.

We also spoke with the driver of the car Ownbey hit who tells us Andrea came "flying out of nowhere" and rear-ended him HARD. The driver says his Jeep was totaled in the wreck.

We reached out to Ownbey -- so far, no response.

someone wrote a comment earlier and they were 100 percent right. She has not aged well. Drugs put weight on these chicks who use to be skinny and hot.

Would you expect anything else? The whole "Howard" thing has almost run its course. King of no media, these days.

EVIDENTLY ...

MONEY CAN'T BUY YOU ... BRAINS.
So much money ... so little common sense. She probably drank due to all the stress of having to figure out different way to spend all that money Howard makes. Poor Thing.

This chik was a mess from the start!
Molested/raped, stripper, suicide attempt, kid, always wants someone to take care of her, etc.
Sad.
She has a weird, high, little-girl voice and that's what Stern liked.
She's just another Wack Packer!

Howard was too lazy to do the miss Howard stern contest every year, so we are stuck with this retard for 20 years.

She is on the Stern show once a year at best. I'm sure Howard is thrilled to have his name posted to this. She was very pretty when she won the title, ten years ago. Now, if he tries to remove the crown, she gets suicidal. It's more of a joke now, and she's the only one that doesn't realize that.

she was once hot.. she won the title year and years ago and anytime she got a hint that they were taking her title away she'd go ape**** so they just let her keep it rather than deal with the phone calls

She doesn't listen to anyone who cares. She is on tons of prescription drugs, they must have been unlabeled if they hold that against her. She learned nothing from her first accident which she claims she was not driving when her friends said it was her.

Poor Andrea. I love her, but she really does need help. (On a personal note, I wish they would bring back the Ms Howard Stern reality show -- one of the best on HowardTV. You could really see what a wreck she was.)
