Sonja Morgan, one of the new castmembers of the current 3rd season of Bravo TV‘s The Real Housewives of NYC, was busted for driving while intoxicated in the ritzy NYC ‘burb of Southampton Village, NY. Here is Sonja‘s mug shot and some deets of her arrest:
A cast member of the hit Bravo reality show “Real Housewives of New York City” was busted for DWI early Monday morning in Southampton Village. Sonja Morgan, 46, failed to halt at a stop sign on First Neck Lane at 2:16 a.m. and was pulled over by a Southampton Village officer, according to cops. Sources said she had been partying on the East End over the course of the Memorial Day weekend. After failing a series of field sobriety tests, the ex-wife of J.P. Morgan’s great-grandson John Adams Morgan refused to take a Breathalyzer test and was taken to local police headquarters and slapped with a DWI rap, according to cops. Morgan, who is in her first season on the show, will appear in court to face the charge at a later date.
While I love Sonja on Housewives and find her a welcome and refreshing addition to the series, I cannot help but be totally disgusted by her arrest for drunk driving. It’s just outrageous to me that folks still think they can get away with driving while drunk. It’s completely irresponsible to put other people’s lives in danger and I just wish people would use better judgment when they decide to drink. Trust me, I know that we are all flawed and no one is perfect … but busts like this can really remind us all that drinking and driving is no small matter. Sonja was very lucky that she didn’t injure herself or others due to her reckless behavior. Hopefully one DUI arrest will be enough for her to learn the lesson.
