Barbara Walters' Daughter

Busted For DUI

Barbara Walters
' daughter -- whose troubled childhood was chronicled in Barbara's biography and in several TV specials -- was arrested for DUI in Florida on Sunday, TMZ has learned.

According to the Collier County Sheriff's Office, 44-year-old Jacqueline Danforth was popped near Naples, FL.  The details surrounding the arrest are unclear.

It's an especially sad story considering Jacqueline made a public vow to get her life on track, following some turbulent teenage years filled with clubbing and substance use.

In fact, Jackie ran a wilderness program for troubled girls in northern Maine for years ... but it appears to have closed in 2008.

FYI -- Jacqueline was adopted as an infant by Walters and then-husband Lee Guber in 1968 -- before divorcing in 1976.

As for the DUI arrest, the Collier County Sheriff's Office website says she's been released from custody on $1,000 bond.

A rep for Barbara Walters had no comment.

DUI? Big f-ing whoop. If it's good enough for Al Michaels... The daughter sounds normal. The sad part of this story is having Babwa Wawa as yo dumb ass mama. What a despicable person and dishonest career. At least the daughter has the excuse she was adopted.

I went to this wilderness camp back in 2007. I met Jackie, seemed like a great person. But after she lost the camp, I guess things went down hill for her

She really doesn't look drunk. Mug shots normally don't do justice for people. Overall her mug shot looks pretty decent. Her eyes really do not indicate that she was drunk whatsoever.

Jacqueline has been through many very expensive 12-Step religious AA/NA cult "HIGHER POWER" Treatment Programs......

WHY DID THE "HIGHER POWER" FAIL HER.... like so many others?

She has bruises on her face - she must have resisted or crashed or something unsavory.
