The fines associated with the above-mentioned charges range from $50 to $510 and will require court appearances.

TMZ first reported her DUI charges. The outlet also reported that Huger claimed she was coming home from dinner with a friend and they were discussing serious topics before her crash.

She allegedly said she was crying while driving. She reportedly claimed her emotions were running high as a vehicle headed toward her, causing her to swerve away and lose control.

It does not appear she was arrested following the accident.

A rep for the Bravolebity did not immediately respond to Page Six’s requests for comment regarding her several citations.

Huger, 60, totaled her luxury 2017 Maserati Tuesday evening when she struck a median and a crosswalk sign at an intersection before finally colliding with a parking sign.

A spokesperson for Maryland’s Montgomery County Police Department told TMZ that she was driving in an “aggressive manner” ahead of her crash.
