Heather Gay’s secret past is coming to light after Lisa Barlow let the cat out of the bag!
During part one of the Real Housewives of Salt Lake City season 2 reunion, Lisa claimed that Heather was arrested for a DUI.
While verbal sparring with Heather, Lisa quipped, “What about your DUI? You’re such a great show of character.”
Heather replied, “I don’t have one, look it up!”
Lisa yelled back: “Yes, you do! I did look it up. You’re a liar.”
Heather denied the claim; however, it seems she wasn’t telling the whole truth as media outlets have dug up details about her slightly checkered past.
According to The Sun, Heather was arrested and charged with a DUI on July 1, 2012, at 1 am in Salt Lake City.
Court documents read: “During the traffic stop, Officer Harker believed he could smell alcohol and asked Ms. Gay if she had been drinking. Ms. Gay responded that earlier in the evening, she had a ‘few sips’ with friends at a local club. Ms. Gay also told Officer Harker that she had a prescription for Adderall.”
The reality TV star allegedly refused to take a breathalyzer and was arrested. At the police station, police obtained a warrant, and Heather’s blood was drawn.
The court docs continued, “The test revealed a blood alcohol concentration of 0.06 and a positive result for amphetamines.”
Heather pleaded not guilty to the DUI and misdemeanor traffic charge at her arraignment. She later filed a motion to toss some of the evidence obtained via the search warrant.
Heather’s attorney argued that police “exceeded the scope of the search warrant by instructing the toxicologist to search for amphetamines in her blood where the search warrant states’ specifically, the substance alcohol,’ thus suggesting that alcohol was the sole item to be tested.”
A judge denied Heather’s request to “suppress” the evidence of amphetamines in her blood sample.
Police later reduced the charges against Heather o reckless driving, which she was found guilty of in court. They also tossed the second count against Heather, and she was ultimately sentenced to 180 days in jail. The court suspended 178 days of Heather’s sentence, and she was able to perform 48 hours of community service in lieu of going to jail for two days.
Heather was ordered to pay $600 in court fees and spent 364 days on probation. She also had to attend the LIVE MADD Victim Impact Panel.
The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City airs on Sundays at 9 pm ET.
