Kim, pictured in 2018, admitted her daughter smoked weed in the hours leading up to the crash, but she insisted Ariana does not have a drinking problem.

Police say Ariana was behind the wheel of a Mercedes G-Wagon when it hit a Ford Focus, WSB-TV reported.

The first officer on the scene said he detected the odor of alcohol on Ariana's breath but she denied drinking and driving.

The arrest report stated that Ariana claimed she smoked a THC vape pen the night before the crash.

The officer said Ariana "slightly" failed a field sobriety test and "had a noticeable sway" when she walked.

Ariana refused to take a Breathalyzer test and she was arrested for driving under the influence.

An officer searched Ariana's vehicle and found a black vape pen in her purse that smelled like marijuana.

Kim Zolciak-Biermann, pictured with daughters Brielle (L) and Ariana (R), took to Instagram to deny Ariana was driving drunk.

"She admitted to consuming marijuana the day before, meaning over 24 hours prior to her contact with law enforcement," Kim said. "She wholly denies these allegations and intends to fight these charges because she is not guilty of them."

Kim and former NFL player Kroy Biermann share four kids, Kroy jr., 8-year-old twins Kaia and Kane, and 10-year-old Kash.

Biermann adopted Kim's daughters, Ariana and 25-year-old Brielle, from a previous relationship.

According to MSN News, Anne Celeste Heche has died from her injuries after crashing her car into a house last week. She was 53.

Heche's close friend, Nancy Davis, announced her death on Instagram on Friday. She wrote: "Heaven has a new Angel. My loving, kind, fun, endearing and beautiful friend Anne Heche went to heaven. I will miss her terribly and cherish all the beautiful memories we have shared."

A rep for Heche released a statement Thursday saying the actress was "not expected to survive" after the fiery crash.

Heche suffered severe burns as well as smoke inhalation that deprived her brain of oxygen following the crash.

"Unfortunately, due to her accident, Anne Heche suffered a severe anoxic brain injury and remains in a coma, in critical condition," a representative told CNN in a statement. "She is not expected to survive."

"It has long been her choice to donate her organs and she is being kept on life support to determine if any are viable," the statement added.

The statement went on to "thank everyone for their kind wishes and prayers for Anne's recovery and thank the dedicated staff and wonderful nurses that cared for Anne at the Grossman Burn Center at West Hills hospital."

"Anne had a huge heart and touched everyone she met with her generous spirit... she will be remembered for her courageous honesty and dearly missed for her light," the statement said.

Heche won a Daytime Emmy in 1991 for Outstanding Younger Actress in a Drama series for her role in the long-running soap opera "Another World."

She is survived by her two sons: 20-year-old Homer Laffoon and 13-year-old Atlas.

Blood work taken after Anne Heche's fiery car crash last week shows the actress had cocaine in her system, police say.

"Based on the blood work, it revealed the presence of narcotics," Officer Lizeth Lomeli of the LAPD told Deadline on Wednesday.

Lomeli confirmed that the Emmy-winning actress is facing a possible felony DUI charge after cocaine was found in her system.

"However, additional testing is required because we have to rule out any substances that were administered by medical treatment," Lomeli said.

Heche, 53, is still in a coma and breathing with the assistance of a ventilator in an ICU. Police obtained a warrant to get a sample of her blood from the hospital.

Heche is in "extremely critical condition" after suffering severe 2nd- and 3rd-degree burn injuries from the August 5 incident.

A photo obtained by TMZ showed a vodka bottle in Heche's car after she first crashed into a garage, then sped off. The toxicology test ruled out alcohol in her system.

Heche was driving at a high rate of speed when her car ran off the road and collided with a residence in the 1700 block of Walgrove. The fiery crash destroyed the house, but the homeowner, her two dogs and a pet turtle escaped injury.

A GoFundMe launched by Lynne Mishele's neighbors raised over $132,000.

The Los Angeles Police Department is investigating actress Anne Heche for driving under the influence of alcohol after she crashed into a garage and a house on Friday.

Heche, 53, is in stable condition in an intensive care unit with severe 2nd- and 3rd-degree burns as well as smoke inhalation and internal injuries.

Police believe Heche was either intoxicated or on drugs when her Mini Cooper slammed into a garage. When residents of an apartment complex rushed out to help her, she drove off at a high rate of speed.

Moments later, Heche crashed into a house setting off a fiery explosion that destroyed the house.

A crane was used to remove Heche's car from the rubble so first responders could get to her.

The female homeowner of the now demolished house was in the backyard and escaped without injury. Neighbors launched a GoFundMe for the woman that raised over $62,000.

LAPD sources tell TMZ, authorities got a warrant for a sample of Heche's blood. The results have not been revealed, but police believe she was intoxicated at the time of Friday's crash.

The LAPD will refer the case to the L.A. City Attorney for possible hit-and-run charges and criminal damage to property.

A photo obtained by TMZ just before the crash appeared to show a bottle of whiskey or vodka in a cup holder in Heche's car.

TMZ also obtained Ring doorbell video of Heche's car speeding down a residential street before slamming into the house.

As TMZ reported, Ellen DeGeneres's ex-lover was on a podcast earlier in the week where she was drinking vodka and wine and appeared intoxicated.

Heche has a history of mental problems. On August 19, 2000, Heche parked her car by the side of a road outside Fresno. She stripped down to a bra and panties and walked 1 1/2 miles to a stranger's home, where she knocked on the front door.

The female homeowner recognized her from her movies and let her in. Heche took a shower in the stranger's home and made herself comfortable. When she wouldn't leave, the woman called the local sheriff's office.

Heche reportedly told sheriff's deputies that she was "God, and was going to take everyone back to heaven in a spaceship." The deputies summoned an ambulance, and she was whisked to Fresno's University Medical Center, where she was admitted to the psychiatric unit. However, she was released after only a few hours.

Kids get to cry whenever they want to, wherever they want to. As an adult you can't do that. You can't just cry at work like that, they send you home! I need my money!"

Surveillance video shows Henry Ruggs' Corvette speeding seconds before he crashed into a Toyota RAV4, killing the driver and her dog.

Ruggs was allegedly drunk when his Corvette crashed into Tina Tintor's SUV early Tuesday.

The impact ignited fuel pouring from the ruptured gas tank. The 23-year-old woman was burned alive along with her dog, Maxi, who was in the back seat.

The star wide receiver was let go by the Las Vegas Raiders NFL team late Tuesday.

Ruggs, 22, was driving his custom wrapped green Chevy Corvette C8 Stingray, which was gifted to him in 2020.

The sports car, which Ruggs lovingly dubbed "Lizzy," was equipped with custom wheels, interior and exterior LED lights, and a police radar detection system, according to DailyMail.com.

Ruggs and his passenger, Kiara Kilgo-Washington, aka Rudy, both suffered "serious" injuries. He reportedly fractured a hip and appeared at his bond hearing in a wheelchair and wearing a neck brace.

In a 2020 video posted on Washington's @TheRUPrint YouTube channel, Ruggs is seen speeding in his Corvette while she nervously begs him to slow down.

"You look scared," Ruggs tells her. He then hit the brakes, causing Washington to drop her cell phone. The video, which was titled "Wild Out Wednesdays," has since been deleted from her YouTube channel.

Ruggs was released from a Las Vegas jail after posting $150,000 bond on Tuesday. He was ordered to wear an ankle monitor while on home confinement. He can't touch alcohol, or drive and he must surrender his passport.

He told police they were on their way to his $1.1 million Las Vegas home when the fatal incident happened.

A prosecutor will ask for the maximum penalty for former Raiders wide receiver Henry Ruggs III at his DUI trial.

The Raiders released Ruggs from his contract on Tuesday, hours after he was involved in a fatal DUI crash that left a female motorist and her dog dead.

Ruggs, 22, was driving at more than 150 mph with a blood-alcohol level twice Nevada's legal limit when his Chevrolet Corvette crashed into the back of a Toyota RAV4.

The impact and fireball killed a 23-year-old woman and her dog, a prosecutor said Wednesday.

The Toyota was fully engulfed in flames by the time emergency responders arrived.

Ruggs and his passenger, Kiara Je'nai Kilgo-Washington, 22, with whom he has a baby daughter, were treated at a hospital with "serious" but non-life-threatening injuries.

A loaded gun was found in his car, prosecutors say.

Ruggs was booked into a Las Vegas jail and appeared in court on Wednesday with his attorneys, David Chesnoff and Richard Schonfeld. He wore a neck brace and was in a wheelchair after suffering a hip fracture in the crash.

He was not asked to enter a plea to the charges, pending the formal filing of charges by Clark County District Attorney Steve Wolfson, according to NFL.com.

Prosecutor Eric Bauman said air bag computer data showed the Corvette slowed from 156 mph to 127 mph before it collided with the Toyota.

Judge Joe M. Bonaventure said he could not recall crash case involving a speed that high since he became a judge.

The prosecutor plans to throw the book at Ruggs who faces a maximum of 20 years in state prison.

Henry Ruggs III has been let go by the Las Vegas Raiders following a drunk driving crash that left a female motorist dead early Tuesday.

Stores selling Ruggs' Las Vegas Raiders merchandise have pulled the items from their shelves, according to TMZ.

The 22-year-old star wide receiver faces two felony charges of driving while under the influence and reckless driving, ESPN reported.

Ruggs was released from the hospital and taken straight to jail on Tuesday to await a bond hearing scheduled for Wednesday, Nov. 3.

Ruggs was behind the wheel of a custom wrapped Chevrolet Corvette when it plowed into the back of a Toyota RAV4 on a busy roadway several miles west of the famed Las Vegas strip at about 3:39 a.m. local time.

When police arrived at the scene, the Toyota was fully engulfed in flames. Firefighters put out the blaze and discovered the deceased female driver inside.

Photos taken at the scene show the extent of the damage to both vehicles. The Toyota was a charred shell and the Corvette's front end was completely demolished.

Ruggs and his passenger, Kiara Je'nai Kilgo-Washington, with whom he has a baby daughter, remained at the scene. Police say he "showed signs of impairment," but the LVMPD declined to disclose the results of his breathalyzer test.

Police are barred by federal privacy law from disclosing medical information, Officer Larry Hadfield, a department spokesman, told ESPN.

Probation is not an option in Nevada for a DUI that causes death. Ruggs faces a maximum of 20 years in prison if convicted.

The Raiders selected the Alabama standout in the first-round of the 2020 NFL draft. At the time, team owner Mark Davis said, "He was the only person I wanted in this draft."

Emergency responders used the jaws of life to extricate Woods from the SUV wreckage. Woods was a sole occupant in the SUV.

"The vehicle was traveling northbound on Hawthorne Boulevard, at Blackhorse Road, when it crashed. The vehicle sustained major damage," officials said. "The driver and sole occupant was identified as PGA golfer, Eldrick 'Tiger' Woods. Mr. Woods was extricated from the wreck with the 'jaws of life' by Los Angeles County firefighters and paramedics, then transported to a local hospital by ambulance for his injuries."

Woods, who is recovering from recent back surgery, previously admitted to an addiction to opioid narcotics as a result of back surgeries over the years.

He was arrested in 2017 after falling asleep behind the wheel of his car near his Jupiter Island, Florida, mansion at about 3:00 am. He was charged with driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

The 45-year-old father-of-two agreed to take part in a first-time DUI offender program, which he completed.

He received a year of probation, was fined $250, and ordered to undergo 50 hours of community service along with regular drug tests. He was not allowed to drink alcohol during the probation period.

Woods' agent Mark Steinberg released a statement following Tuesday's crash.

"Tiger Woods was in a single-car accident this morning in California where he suffered multiple leg injuries. He is currently in surgery and we thank you for your privacy and support," Steinberg said.
