The ‘Teen Mom’ star was picked up for a DUI after an alleged night of St. Patrick’s Day partying, but the 21-year-old revealed what really went down the night she got arrested! Read on to find out what happened.

Farrah Abraham, 21, was arrested for an alleged DUI on March 18, and police say her blood alcohol registered at a .147 — nearly twice the legal limit in Nebraska. But the Teen Mom alum reveals in a new interview that what’s written in the police reports is not the full story! Read on to find out what she said.

Farrah opened up to InTouch magazine about the night of the arrest, and her alleged out-of-control behavior in the cop car.

“It was St. Patrick’s Day and I was out with my sister. I did not plan to drink because I was sick, so I took the role of being in charge and making sure my sister and I would return home together and safely,” Farrah, tells the magazine. “At 10 p.m., I tried to leave, and at that time, my sister was not ready to leave, so I had been sipping on drinks to pass the time.”

Farrah Reveals How She Got Arrested

Farrah says a police officer approached her as she was parked in the car, which is a different account than the police report, which alleges she was driving and swerved and nearly hit a cop car!

“When I was parked, a police officer asked me what I was doing, so I told him I was worried about my sister and I was trying to go home,” she continues.

“They insisted on the regular questions and asked me to get out of the car. I got out of the car, and because I was upset, I yelled. Because I’m sick, I could not give an accurate breathalyzer test, due to coughing and shortage of breath,” she adds — again, different from the police report which alleged that she “put her teeth onto the tube and didn’t provide a sufficient sample.”

But Farrah isn’t too worried about her legal record. “I have a lawyer and all will work out with my ticket,” she tells the magazine.

We’ll have to see how that all plays out!
