According to sources, she took a breathalyzer test and was arrested on suspicion of DUI. She blew a .13 B.A.C. level. The sobriety test also indicated that she had 2 different prescriptions in her system.
“Jenna blew a .13 and had two prescription drugs in her system at the time of her arrest — zolpidem (Ambien) and buprenorphine (Suboxone).”
If Ms. Jameson had been driving in Virginia, her penalties for DUI would be a potential year in jail and a fine of up to $2500.00. Her license would be suspended for one year and she could not get a restricted driver’s license unless she had ignition interlock placed on her vehicle. It is odd that the police reported that Ms. Jameson had prescription drugs in her system. Typically, the police would only administer either a breath test OR a blood test to determine intoxication. The police report indicates that she “blew” a .13 BAC. According to Fairfax DUI lawyer Alex Gordon, the breathalyzer test cannot determine presence of prescription drugs.
