A reality star who blew a red light got popped for a DUI to boot last week. “Survivor: South Pacific” contestant Semhar Tadesse was pulled over in L.A. for a traffic stop Thursday and ended up in cuffs.

Tadesse was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence, TMZ reports, after cops smelled alcohol coming from her car. She was administered a field sobriety twice and reportedly registered a .14 on a breathalyzer (nearly twice the legal limit in California) and was taken into custody. She posted $5000 bail and was released hours later.

Tadesse, 25, is a spoken word artist who currently lives in Los Angeles and was the first contestant eliminated this season of “Survivor.” “Sources” tell TMZ that Tadesse was unable to walk in a straight line due to a foot injury, but that she is accepting full responsibility for the incident and is “disappointed” in herself.
