Katrina Darrell — the chick who famously auditioned for “American Idol” in a bikini back in 2009 — was arrested this morning for DUI … our sources has learned.
According to Pomona PD Sgt. Patrick O”Malley, the 24-year-old singer … also known as “Bikini Girl” … was arrested in Los Angeles at 12:16 AM … with her mother in the passenger seat.
Darrell allegedly told police she was en route to a nearby hospital … because her mom had fallen down at home.
But while Katrina was driving to the hospital, she allegedly ran a red light and smashed into another vehicle.
Darrell allegedly tried to flee the scene … but a nearby officer who heard the crash responded and pulled over Katrina”s 2004 Toyota Camry.
When the officer approached Katrina, he smelled booze … and gave her a field sobriety test. She performed poorly … and was arrested for DUI.
Katrina — who was crying hysterically during the arrest — was hauled to a nearby police station … where she took a breathalyzer test … and blew a .15 and a .17 … WAYYYY over the legal limit, .08.
Katrina was eventually cited and released just after 6AM. As for her mom, an ambulance was called to the scene of the arrest … but her condition is unclear.
Things could get worse for Katrina … we”re told she could also face charges for hit and run for allegedly trying to flee the scene of the initial accident.
We reached out to Katrina for comment — so far, no response.
