Kim Zolciak-Biermann’s daughter, Ariana, “wholly denied” she was “impaired by alcohol” after she was arrested under suspicion of driving under the influence on Saturday morning in Georgia. 

The 20-year-old “Don’t Be Tardy” reality television star, who found fame growing up on the Bravo network, was booked into the Forsyth Sheriff’s system after 1 a.m. on August 13 for “DUI – Driving under the influence of alcohol.”

“Ariana was involved in a minor fender bender,” her lawyer, Justin Spizman of Hawkins Spizman confirmed to Fox News Digital. “When police arrived on scene, the investigating officer immediately initiated an investigation for DUI. 

“Despite Ariana’s constant invocation that she was upset and anxious from the minor accident, the officer incorrectly concluded she was impaired by alcohol. That was not the case.”

He also faces charges for allegedly furnishing alcohol to a minor and violating the conditions of his limited driving permit.

Online speculation sparked by matching Instagram posts from a Charlie Puth concert nearly six weeks ago pinned Ariana and Hudson back together, but it’s unclear if their relationship is confirmed.
