Katheryn Dennis Accused of DUI After Three-Vehicle Crash

A former star from the TV reality show “Southern Charm” was arrested for driving under the influence with open containers of alcohol in her car after she allegedly caused a three-vehicle crash.

Katheryn Dennis is a 32-year-old mother of two, and she most notably starred in Bravo’s “Southern Charm” from seasons 2 – 8 after her supporting role in the first season. Dennis made it known that she struggled with drinking. She was successful when she quit drinking in 2018, but she reported that she started again in 2019. Fans speculated it could have been inspired by her feeling distressed after ending a toxic relationship.

On May 20, Dennis was driving in Goose Creek, South Carolina. When she approached a red light, she did not stop in time and she crashed into the car in front of her. The momentum from the impact forced that vehicle to hit the one stopped in front of it.

When officers went to the scene, they said they got the impression Dennis was intoxicated. They reported that they believed they could smell alcohol coming from her breath. When asked if she had anything to drink, Dennis reportedly said she had not been drinking alcohol. She was asked to take a roadside sobriety test, and before she began the exercises, she let the police know she had a hard time balancing.

According to reports, Dennis performed poorly and did not consent to a breathalyzer. Her car was searched, and the police allegedly found small bottles of alcohol, some of which had reportedly been opened.

Dennis was taken into custody on suspicion of driving under the influence and driving with an open container of alcohol.

It was reported that last fall, she was also accused of DUI when she was reportedly involved in a hit-and-run. She was cited but not arrested for the allegations.
