However, after some apparently heavy duty partying last night, TMZ reports the singer was arrested for drunken driving. As reported by Global Grind, the singer’s arrest took place in Miami Beach at approximately 3 a.m.
Here’s how it went down.
1. Kat Dahlia Was Busted For a DUI on Tuesday
Kat was pulled over Tuesday morning for driving over the limit during the wee hours of the morning when a cop saw her pass by without her headlights on and pulled her over. According to The Huffington Post, the officer that approached her 2013 Nissan had a very strong suspicion that she had been doing some heavy drinking prior to getting inside the vehicle. Reports also claim Kat had noticeably bloodshot eyes and her speech was slurred.

Kat reportedly failed to comply with anything the officer asked her to do, including the completion of a sobriety test. Instead, she reportedly cussed him out and continued to refuse his orders. Unfortunately, we don’t have a recording of her exact words.
3. Kat Resisted Arrest

As told by Miaminewtimes, this is what her officer said based on the MBPD’s affidavit:
I then asked the defendant to exit the vehicle. She asked me why and then stated she couldn’t because she was in a swim suit. I afforded the defendant the opportunity to cover herself with clothing and then she exited the vehicle… The defendant asked me again why she needed to exit the vehicle and I stated I believed she might be driving under the influence and asked her to perform some exercises to dispel my suspicion.
But, according to him she never ended up giving in to his requests, and later even refused to put her arms by her back to stop him from arresting her.
Bad move, Kat!

How does getting a misdemeanor DUI and resisting arrest count the day after a crazy night sound as a 23rd birthday present? Yeah, that’s what we thought. Maybe not too great, but at least now Kat’s sobered up and dealing with the consequences like an adult.
