The arresting officer said in the report that Sharpe “was still in the driver’s seat” of her Honda when he was dispatched to the scene, despite being involved in a single-car collision moments earlier. After being read her Miranda rights, Sharpe “stated … that she was driving her car and could not remember exactly” what happened. She also admitted to drinking “a couple beers prior to driving,” according to the officer.
The arrest report goes on to detail the multiple field sobriety tests that the reality star failed. Each of her eyes had a “lack of smooth pursuit” and “a distinct and sustained nystagmus at maximum deviation,” or involuntary eye movements. She was also “unable to maintain balance” and “had a sway as she walked” during a walk-and-turn exercise. Additionally, she repeatedly missed her nose during a finger-to-nose test.
The Fort Lauderdale, Florida, resident was booked at 6:33 a.m. and released on her own recognizance at 11:59 a.m. She is scheduled to be arraigned on March 9.
