'American Idol 2' finalist Julia DeMato busted for drug possession

UPI News Service, 12/06/2005 

"American Idol" finalist Julia DeMato says her weekend drug bust was a "misunderstanding" that "will be taken care of in court."

The 26-year-old hairstylist and finalist on the 2003 edition of the Fox TV show was arrested early Sunday in Brookfield, Conn., for driving under the influence of alcohol and possession of marijuana and cocaine, reported Tuesday.

A Brookfield police report said officers questioned DeMato after she pulled into a restaurant parking lot more than an hour after it had closed. She failed a field sobriety test and officers found in her vehicle "two marijuana pipes, a small quantity of marijuana and a glassine baggie with a small amount of white powder in her purse that field tested positive for cocaine."

The would-be singer was released on $10,000 bond with a court date set for Dec. 16.

"I am not a drug user," DeMato told the Danbury (Conn.) News-Times. "This was just a misunderstanding. It's going to be taken care of in court, and that's that."
