Celeb Chef Barbara Lynch Arrested for Alleged Drunken Driving After Crashing into a Parked Car
Renowned Boston chef Barbara Lynch was charged with alleged drunken driving in Gloucester, Massachusetts early Tuesday morning, the Gloucester Times reports.
The celebrity chef, whose publicist could not immediately be reached for comment, reportedly told Boston police that she was driving home from work at one of her restaurants, and that she had “a few glasses of wine with dinner” and “did not know what happened.” After failing a series of field sobriety tests, Lynch was found to have had a blood alcohol content of 0.159, nearly twice the legal limit.
