Karen Huger has issued a statement after she made headlines last week for being arrested for a DUI.

“Thank you all for your prayers and well wishes during this very frightening experience .I am still in shock from last night’s incident, but grateful to be alive today. With the passing of my Beloved Mother, Grief comes and goes in waves, and with Mother’s Day approaching it has felt more like a tsunami,” she told TMZ.

“Last night I met a girlfriend for dinner, we talked and brought up some very emotionally sensitive topics. I was crying on my way home and saw a car heading right for me. I swerved to avoid the head-on collision, hit the divider, and then a tree. I’m hurt, bruised up a bit, but so grateful I am alive! I would like to stress, it’s important to understand your emotional state when driving, and may this be a reminder to all to use their seatbelts, my Mother may be my Guardian Angel but the seatbelt saved my life.”

Karen was reportedly driving her 2017 Maserati when Montgomery County Police officers stopped her just minutes away from midnight this Tuesday. While driving, she allegedly hit numerous street signs.

Officers say the reality star reeked of alcohol during the arrest. She also reportedly refused to take the breathalyzer. The police report said that she had bloodshot eyes and slurred speech.

The Grand Dame was charged with driving a vehicle while impaired by alcohol and driving while under the influence of alcohol. She also faces charges of negligently driving a vehicle in a careless and imprudent manner endangering property, life, and person and recklessly driving a vehicle in wanton and willful disregard for the safety of persons and property.
