She told officers that she didn’t remember getting into her car, and she refused a blood alcohol test. Giorgis was later charged with reckless driving with a disregard for the safety of a person or property. She was sentenced to a $1,000 fine and an order to complete driving school.
On Monday (April 26), Giorgis issued an on-air apology, where she told viewers, “Many of you have noticed I’ve been off-air for a few weeks.” After addressing her arrest, Giorgis stated, “As I move forward, I want you to know I have learned from this and I will continue learning.”
