‘OutDaughtered’ Star Michelle ‘Mimi’ Theriot Busted for DWI, Cops Allege Perfume Cover-up
Michelle theriot – who rose to prominence as Gramma Mimi on TLC’s hit show, “OutDaughtered” – was arrested for DUI … TMZ has learned.
Mimi was arrested last weekend in League City, Texas shortly after midnight on her way home. Cops say Mimi’s black Ford SUV swerved while straddling the solid white shoulder line.
Cops say when they tried to stop her Mimi took a while to stop and when they approached her cops said there was a strong smell of perfume emanating from the SUV . The cops say they know the game … people try to cover up certain smells with perfume or cologne.
Mimi was asked to produce her driver’s license, and the cops say she was lethargic. They also say Mimi’s speech was muddled and her eyes were bloodshot. When the cops asked her if she had alcohol, she told them she had 2 glasses of wine … before changing her story later and saying she had no wine but 2 Michelob Ultra beers.
Cops say it got worse when Mimi got out of the car unsteadily … rocking back and forth. According to cops, she also bombed several field sobriety tests and had to be prevented from trying to get back into her SUV. She was handcuffed and taken to prison.
“OutDaughtered” – which aired season 7 earlier this summer – presents Adam and Danielle Busby, who are raising 6 girls among which are the only all-female American quintuplets ever recorded. Danielle’s mother, Mimi, is a big part of the show … having moved from Louisiana to Texas to be closer to her grandchildren.
