Model Arrested, Again, in East Hampton

Village police said Bridget Hall's license had been suspended twice -- once for a driving while intoxicated charge in 2010.

Supermodel Bridget Hall was arrested last week in East Hampton for the second time in a year.

This time, said Hall, 33, was driving with a suspended license as a result of a driving while intoxicated charge in 2010. Her 2007 Lexus GS3 sedan was reportedly also unregistered and without insurance.

Hall, famous for her Sports Illustrated modeling, reportedly admitted to police that she didn't have a license due to the DWI. "She stated she was on her way to community service and paying for taxis was too expensive," her arrest report said.

The arresting officer said he noticed the dark window tinting on her gray sedan as she was at the corner of Cooper and Newtown Lane, and pulled her over in Reutershan's parking lot, at about 9:40 a.m.

Police confirmed the suspension with the New York State Department of Motor Vehicle, and found there were actually two suspensions on her license -- one for the DWI and one for something else, perhaps not answering a summons, according to Village Police Chief Jerry Larsen.

Hall was charged with two counts of aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle in second and third degrees, which are misdemeanors, and four violations for unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle, driving an unregistered and uninsured motor vehicle, and having windows that are too dark. She was processed and released on her own recognizance at 10:30 a.m.

She was given an appearance ticket for that coincides with her DWI case.

East Hampton Town police arrested Hall in late August. Hall, who has a house in East Hampton but lists her residence as Brooklyn, reportedly vowed to fight the charges. Her attorney on the DWI case, Salvatore Strazzullo, declined to comment on Monday.

Imagine if the person pulled over was an illegal alien? They'd just be let go.
