Cat Cora might have circled the globe on Around The World In 80 Plates, but the out chef won’t see the inside of a jail cell, after pleading no contest to driving under the influence and rear-ending another car.
After the Food Network star hit another driver in Santa Barbara, CA on June 17, a police officer administered a breathalyzer test, which registered a .20, more than twice the legal limit.
Cora, 45, was sentenced to nine months of DUI school, three years probation, a fine of $2,386 and a 120-day suspended jail sentence.
“I deeply regret my decision to drive that evening after my designated driver became unavailable,” Cora told Access Hollywood. “I learned a very important lesson from this experience and take full accountability for my actions. This will never happen again.”
Guess this means no more shots of ouzo with the sous-chefs, huh?
