Katrina Darrell, who you might remember as the girl who deigned to wear a bikini to her American Idol audition a few years back, has gotten into a little bit of trouble with the law.

Police arrested the singer/model/whatever on suspicion of running a red light, fleeing the scene of a car crash and driving under the influence of alcohol, according to TMZ. They say a breathalyzer test showed she was above the legal limit of alcohol.

Through her manager, Darrell admits to having a few glasses of wine with dinner and getting into a car crash, but she denies the rest of the charges and says she'll fight them in court. Perhaps she should start picking out a conservative 1-piece for the occasion.
