A “star” of Myrtle Manor, a television show based in Myrtle Beach, SC was arrested early today on suspicion that she was driving under the influence of alcohol (DUI) after officers were called to a vehicle crash, according to authorities. Amanda Lee Adams was charged with first-offense DUI after officers were called just before 4:30 a.m. Friday to U.S. 501 and Broadway Street in Myrtle Beach for a vehicle crash.
“Welcome to Myrtle Manor” is a “docu-drama” that was filmed last summer at Patrick’s Mobile Home Park, in Myrtle Beach and airs on TLC. According to her Facebook page, Adams described herself as “the ‘bless your heart’ trucker hat wearing, turtle hunting, four wheel driving, redneck of the Darlin Dogs Empire.”
Early Friday, officers found a black Jeep Wrangler with front end damage and a utility pole had been knocked down, according to the DUI arrest report. The officer smelled a slight odor of alcohol on Adams and asked her how much she had to drink. The officer wrote in his report that Adams was the only occupant of the vehicle and said she had three beers and one shot. The officer administered a field sobriety test and noted that Adams did not follow instructions and did not complete the test. At the Myrtle Beach Jail when Adams was being booked, Adams told police she had three beers and four shots, according to the report. A breath test administered as part of the DUI investigation showed Adams had a 0.20 BAC.
