Former Biggest Loser trainer Michelle Bridges made a tearful apology outside Waverley Local Court today after pleading guilty to drink driving with her child on board.
Bridges allegedly recorded .086 when tested by NSW police after being was stopped by police during a roadside random breath test in Bellevue Hill on January 26.
Today she was given a three-month driving ban and a $750 fine with a conviction recorded.
“I would like to apologise to my family, friends and community for my gross error in judgment,” she told reporters.
“The consequences of these actions will haunt me forever.
“I ask for forgiveness from my great community and my family and thank you for your support.”
Magistrate Allison Hawkins accepted the incident was “humiliating” for Bridges, who recently confirmed a split from partner Steve “Commando” Willis.
“This behaviour is inexcusable, and I am absolutely devastated and embarrassed to find myself in this position. It has been a very difficult time for me the last few weeks dealing with the break-up of my long-term relationship,” she previously said in a statement.
“This is by no means an excuse for my behaviour but I feel the emotional turmoil I have been going through has impacted my decision making. I am extremely sorry for my actions.”
