Supermodel Stephanie Seymour Left Scene of Crash Before DUI Arrest: Police

Supermodel Stephanie Seymour slammed her Land Rover SUV into a utility pole about an hour before she allegedly got into a fender bender and was arrested on drunken driving charges in Connecticut last month, authorities say.

The onetime Victoria's Secret model was arrested on Jan. 15 after authorities say she backed her Range Rover into a Mercedes near a ramp to Interstate 95 in Greenwich. She allegedly had bloodshot eyes and smelled like she had been drinking, but refused to take field sobriety tests and was booked on DUI charges by state police.

She was re-arrested Monday by Greenwich police after authorities alleged that about an hour earlier that same night, she slammed the SUV into a utility pole near her home on Stanwich Road. She left the scene after the impact.

When she was arrested for the fender bender near I-95, state police had noted that the car had some damage from a prior crash, according to Greenwich Police. 

In addition to charges from her original arrest, police say Seymour has also been accused of evading responsibility and failure to drive in a proper lane. 

Seymour, who appeared in several Sports Illustrated swimsuit editions and was a model for Victoria's Secret, was scheduled to appear in Stamford Superior Court on Feb. 2 on the state police charges and on Feb. 7 for the charges Greenwich Police filed. 

Attorney information for the woman wasn't immediately available.
