'Survivor: South Pacific' castaway Semhar Tadesse arrested for DUI

By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 11/01/2011 

Survivor: South Pacific eliminee Semhar Tadesse was reportedly arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence on Thursday.

Tadesse was taken into custody after she was pulled over for running a red light in Los Angeles and then failed her field sobriety test when the police smelled alcohol coming from her car, TMZ reported.

According to officials, Tadesse -- who was the first castaway eliminated from the Survivor franchise's 23rd edition after she was voted out of her tribe during the season's first Tribal Council session and then subsequently lost her duel on Redemption Island -- reportedly registered a blood-alcohol content level of 0.14 when she was administered a breathalyzer test, an amount nearly twice the legal limit in California.

Tadesse was arrested immediately following the sobriety test but was released hours later on $5,000 bail, TMZ reported.

While Tadesse has reportedly taken full responsibility for her actions and expressed disappointment in herself after she previously lost a friend in a drunk driving accident, sources close to the reality TV star told TMZ she couldn't walk in a straight line due to a prior foot injury.
