Bridget Hall, who is a former supermodel, was arrested on Sunday in East Hampton for driving while intoxicated, when she failed a breathalyzer test after being pulled over by police.
The former supermodel, is fighting her Drunk Driving arrest – and insists she didn’t touch a drop of Alcohol Saturday night.
Hall said, “I had been visiting a friend and was driving home late alone. I did not drink — I would never drink and drive, God forbid that I would ever hurt anybody. I respect the law. I was tired and that was it.”
She’s now hired powerhouse lawyer Salvatore Strazzullo to fight her case. He told us, “Sometimes cops lie, sometimes machines malfunction. I will argue that Miss Hall should not have been pulled over in the first place for swerving. The roads in the Hamptons are not lit well, they have curves and bad potholes. She did not drink and drive. I want to examine this Breathalyzer and check its maintenance record.” Hall has a court date Sept. 30.
Hall said, “The police pulled me over saying I had swerved, asked a few questions. They asked me to do the sobriety tests, which went fine. When he asked me to do the Breathalyzer, I was happy to do it because I’d not had one drink that night. I had nothing to hide. I was totally shocked when it registered positive. I couldn’t believe it happened. I still can’t.”
Hall, who moved to East Hampton this spring after living in Manhattan for 16 years, added: “I moved here for the quiet life. I am not a party girl. I have a house out here in the woods and it’s beautiful and peaceful. It’s just me and my 6-month-old puppy. I am not dating anyone.”
