Kim Zolciak Biermann has broken her silence following the arrest of her daughter Arielle Biermann.
“Ariana was involved in a minor fender bender. When police arrived on the scene, the investigating officer immediately initiated an investigation for DUI of alcohol,” she wrote on Instagram Story. “Despite Ariana’s constant invocation that she was upset and anxious from the minor accident, the officer incorrectly concluded she was impaired. That was not the case.”
Zolciak-Biermann added that Ariana was “not impaired by any substance, including alcohol or marijuana.”
After her arrest, Ariana released a statement denying she was intoxicated.
Ariana was arrested and charged with three misdemeanors: driving under the influence of alcohol, improper/erratic lane change and underage possession/purchase of alcohol after crashing into another vehicle.
“Since she was being cooperative and honest, she admitted to consuming marijuana the day before, meaning over 24 hours prior to her contact with the law,” Kim continued. “In addition, the arresting officer, as evidenced by his own police report, charged Ariana with impairment by alcohol. She wholly denies these allegations and intends to fight these charges because she is not guilty of them. We appreciate the general public allowing this case to be tried on its merits, and not rhetoric or incorrect conclusions.”
