Stephanie Seymour applies for alcohol rehab program, could get Connecticut DUI dismissed

STAMFORD, Connecticut -- Supermodel Stephanie Seymour has applied for a program that could lead to the dismissal of a drunken driving charge in Connecticut.

The former Victoria's Secret and Sports Illustrated model appeared in court Tuesday to answer to the charge.

Police say the 47-year-old Seymour backed her SUV into another car on an Interstate 95 exit ramp on Jan. 15 in Greenwich.

This is a photo police took of her while she was in custody:

Police say Seymour was unsteady, her eyes were bloodshot and her breath smelled of alcohol. Police say she refused field sobriety tests.

She was also charged with crashing into a utility pole and leaving the scene in a separate incident that day.

She told a judge Tuesday she applied to an alcohol counseling program.

Her lawyer says she isn't seeking preferential treatment and wants to put the episode behind her.
