Barbara Walters' Daughter

Drunk and Abusive

During DUI Arrest

Barbara Walters' daughter was so out of control during her DUI arrest, she had to be "taken to the ground" so she wouldn't run into traffic ... this according to the police report obtained by TMZ.

We broke the story ... 44-year-old Jacqueline Walters Danforth -- who famously discussed her troubled teenage years on various TV specials with her mom -- was arrested for DUI in Naples, FL on May 19.

According to the report, Jacqueline was in the driver's seat of a Honda Pilot which was stopped by police around 1:24 AM ... after cops received reports about an SUV stopped on the highway without its lights on.

During the encounter, cops say both Jackie and a male passenger -- described as her BF -- appeared to be extremely intoxicated.

Cops say ... they went to place the man in handcuffs -- which pissed Jackie off ... so she grabbed at one of the officers and "began shouting."

The arresting officer states in the report, "I was afraid that the suspect may run into traffic on the highway, so she was taken to the ground due to her unpredictable behavior, then secured in handcuffs."

According to the report, Jacqueline eventually took a breathalyzer test and blew a .218 -- more than TWICE the legal limit.

She was eventually arrested for DUI ... and was released several hours later on $1,000 bond.

Great. So Mrs. Walters have something to discussed on her show "THE VIEW". Pathetic Biatch driving while under the influence of alcohol and putting other motorists and pedestrians out there in danger. She Needs to get her D.L. and Car taken away from her and also put her in jail! Although I highly doubt this ugly biatch will do time in jail. She's probably going to use her 'Mommy Celeb' card again.

How come the 12-Step religious AA/NA cult's "HIGHER POWER" FAILED HER?

A REAL "HIGHER POWER" would work 100% of the time!

Parents are not responsible for the actions of their middle aged children. Give me a break.

I know she is not Barbara's biological daughter, but I bet even with a .218 she can still pronounce her Rs. "Take that mommy!"

This situation has nothing to do with Barbara Walters. This is a grown assed woman who should take responsibility for her actions. I don't care for Walters that much, but she has nothing to do with why her daughter is driving drunk. Mommy-time is over.
