The 31-year-old was pulled over for a random breath test on October 3, driving a Kia Cerato on the Anzac Bridge in Pyrmont, Sydney.

The 31-year-old submitted a breath test analysis reading of 0.081 and was issued a Field Court Attendance Notice for mid-range drink-driving and “her driving privileges in NSW were suspended”.

Angie usually resides in Queensland but is currently living in Sydney whilst she films the upcoming season of Dancing With The Stars: All Stars.

“I was pulled over on my way to a picnic in early October,” she told The Daily Telegraph. “I had two drinks on an empty stomach while getting ready. I was shocked but totally in the wrong and I take full responsibility. I am deeply regretful and sorry.”

Angie is scheduled to appear at Sydney’s Downing Centre Local Court on Wednesday, October 27.

Last week, Angie boldly accused producers of setting her up with “deeply average men” on the show during her 2019 season.

Speaking to TV Week in October, the 31-year-old said she “can’t wait” to watch the new season of The Bachelorette, which begins on October 20.

“I can’t wait to watch Brooke [Blurton] being our first Indigenous and bisexual Bachelorette,” Angie said.
