Police say that during DaniLeigh's May 30 arrest for an alleged hit-and-run, officers found an open bottle of Don Julio 1942 tequila in her vehicle. She was taken into custody after allegedly hitting a man driving a moped and continuing to drive. According to reports, DaniLeigh drove with the moped stuck in the grill of her Mercedes SUV for about a block. The man who was hit was taken to a hospital and suffered minor injuries, including a fractured spine and a lacerated kidney.

According to one officer, DaniLeigh didn't initially pull over and police had to honk their horn multiple times before she stopped. The officer claims that both DaniLeigh and her passenger appeared to be intoxicated, despite her claims that she had not consumed any alcohol. Upon inspecting the vehicle that reportedly smelled of alcohol, the officer says they found the empty bottle of vodka. DaniLeigh was arrested after failing a field sobriety test, and taken to the Miami Beach Police Department. She was later given a breathalyzer test and reportedly blew almost twice the legal limit, 0.148. She was charged with three felonies, including driving under the influence, leaving the scene of a crash with serious bodily injury, and DUI damage to property.
