Presley Gerber, 19, was charged with a DUI in his Tesla at 4 am on NYE

Hugo by Hugo Boss fashion show during Berlin Fashion Week

Just know that I completely understand that I am getting increasingly grumpy as I get older. I spend a lot of time doing imaginary rants at whippersnappers. The Gerber kids particular annoy me – I’m loathe to cover Kaia Gerber because A) she’s just as much a nepotism model as Kylie Jenner; B) she’s too young to book all of these huge campaigns and runway jobs and C) I actually don’t think she’s grown into her face or body yet. The joke from Absolutely Fabulous has come true: the fashion industry is just chucking fetuses down the runway at this point. I cover Kaia because she’s been hailed as the next big thing, but I’ve always ignored Kaia’s brother, Presley. Presley Gerber is also a (nepotism) model, all cheekbones and sullen looks. But it seems Presley is very dangerous: he’s the kind of 19-year-old kid who gets blitzed and speeds around LA in his Tesla.

The son of Cindy Crawford and Randy Gerber — who has become a force in the modeling world — ended the year on a bad note … getting arrested for DUI. Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … cops pulled Presley Gerber over Sunday at around 4 AM in Beverly Hills for speeding in his Tesla. Cops say he reeked of booze, so they gave him a field sobriety test … which he failed.

The 19-year-old model was booked for DUI and released without bail. In California, it doesn’t matter what his blood alcohol level was … there is zero tolerance for underage drivers who drink. A .01 will get you arrested. If convicted, Presley will automatically have his driver’s license suspended for at least 1 year.

Presley’s lawyer, Scott Spindel, tells TMZ, his client has no criminal record and has never been arrested, adding, “Presley Gerber takes this very seriously and is taking the necessary steps to address the allegations.”

Presley’s still a teenager but he’s already huge in the modeling world. He’s been signed to IMG for several years now and has done campaigns for Calvin Klein, Doce & Gabbana and Paris Vogue.

That’s interesting about California being a zero tolerance DUI state. I didn’t know that – people could conceivably blow a .01 if they just had a glass of wine with dinner. But it sounds like Presley’s blood alcohol level was a lot more than a .01, especially if he reeked of alcohol to the point where it was obvious to the cops. Take him off the road, California. Also: I wonder how Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber will play this? Odds on favorite “boys will be boys” or will they make him lean into the “bad boy” persona so that Kaia can be the Good Girl?

    I thought every state has a zero tolerance if the person is underage? I’m not positive, I know my state does.

    • The rational consumer says:

      Correct, zero tolerance is for underage drinkers. The limit for legal drinkers is .08, I believe.

      • Jen says:

        However, regardless of your age, you can still end up with a “driving while impaired” charge if you are below .08 and still register on a Breathalyzer. My sister was arrested when she was pulled over for a broken taillight and blew a .04 after some wine with dinner. There really is no “safe” level.

      • broodytrudy says:

        Utah’s new law says DUI happens at .05. We’ve always been a bit mad over here, but we’re getting ridiculous now.

    • Annika says:

      You’re correct, Alissa

    • Tourmaline says:

      Yep, good catch

  2. RBC says:

    Belongs to a wealthy family and must have money of his own (driving a Tesla. Really??) Yet, does not have the brains to hire a driver or call a taxi or Uber/Lyft to get home
    Idiot

    • minx says:

      It’s so much easier these days with smartphones and Uber/Lyft apps—and, as everyone is saying, he’s rich enough to have his own driver. When I was in college and then lived in the city I never owned a car, which was a good thing. Buses, taxis and my own two feet got me home when I was drunk.

    • Dee Kay says:

      I actually think Uber/Lyft does a huge public service by helping to keep drunk drivers off the road. It’s easier to call a Lyft today than it was to call a cab ten years ago, and I wish every single person who’s inebriated would take advantage of these apps. I talked to a Lyft driver once who said that her Friday nights were spent ferrying drunk folks home from bars, and her Saturday mornings were spent bringing hungover people back to their cars wherever they parked them the night before, and I thanked her for her service.

  3. Seraphina says:

    First two questions:

    1. Why is he out at that age at 4 AM?
    2. Why does he have a Tesla at that age?

    I don’t care how much money his parents may have, common sense they don’t have.

    I grew up with parents from Europe. Alcohol was never locked up and we cohld have a glass of wine or a drink at weddings and celebrations. But drink and drive???? Ohhhhhhh, no no no.

    • Lolly says:

      I mean, I don’t necessarily blame him for question number 1. He might not be in college, but he’s that age, I was definitely out at 4am at 19. But there’s really no reason for him to be drinking and driving. He’s wealthy and in the age of Uber’s. I can’t stand any of these nepotism models. From Kendall and Gigi, all the way to these siblings.

      • Megan says:

        He is over the age of 18 so he can be out at any time he chooses. He has been a working model for years and can buy a Tesla if he wants one.

    • Erinn says:

      I always thought that that was a healthier way to treat alcohol for most people. Not all, probably, but for the most part it seems to make sense. My parents really aren’t drinkers. My mom jokingly gave up a specific type of wine because it’s what she’d drank WAY too much of the night she met my dad. She says it’s because she met him haha, but it’s really because she was about 115lbs and plastered, the resulting hangover really was what made her kick it. But she’d go out to Christmas parties, or weddings and come home giggly and buzzed, and it was cute. I remember her coming into my room one night and hearing dad say “noooo they’re sleeping!” and her just whispering “I just wanted to say I love you” and then going to bed.

      Dad would keep beer in the fridge in case he had some of his friends over, but I only ever really saw him drink a beer or a cooler on vacation. And even then, never to excess. But there was tons of alcohol at my grandmothers, and it was on the top shelf for the most part, but not locked up. Nothing was locked up at my own house. We were allowed to have a small glass of wine at Christmas when we were about 18… legal was 19. But even with nothing locked up I only took a swig of my moms rum ONCE and I think I was around 18 then too. I never felt the need to get into it, and I think it’s because it was never a huge deal in our house. My mother did say if I ever came home drunk and had been driving she’d call the cops on me – and they made it clear that they didn’t want me drinking as a teen, but nothing was ever done to lock up the booze or anything. I went through my university phase, but was always pretty safe and in a group of people I trusted. And now in my late 20′s I will only really drink because I want to have a GOOD drink, not to get drunk. I think I get ‘drunk’ MAYBE once a year if that.

      • lamaga18 says:

        What is the point of your comment? You had parents who were mild drinkers and don’t have an alcohol issue?

      • Erinn says:

        lamaga18 – are you just intending to be rude, or was that accidental?

        It was a reply to Seraphina talking about their upbringing with alcohol: “I grew up with parents from Europe. Alcohol was never locked up and we cohld have a glass of wine or a drink at weddings and celebrations. But drink and drive???? Ohhhhhhh, no no no.” – and I agreed because alcohol was never a big deal in our house but there were expectations that you would NEVER be stupid enough to drink and drive. It was in the house, it was enjoyed on occasion, but never made out to be some horrible form of evil. I grew up with a healthy relationship to alcohol for the most part, and I think that’s partially why. It was something to be enjoyed with responsibility. I have other family members who grew up in households where alcohol was ‘THE WORST’ and they turned out to be heavy drinkers, and I’ve heard one drinks and drives. I’m just sharing my experience.

        I’m really not sure why you felt the need to comment on my post if you just were going to snark when I’d said nothing worthy of it.

      • Sophie says:

        I liked the story about your mum coming into your room, such a sweet memory to have.
        So many horrible things happening in my country, and around the world, at the moment; I needed something like this to make me smile. Thank you, Erinn.

      • Rosalee says:

        What a lovely story, your parents are so sweet. You were so fortunate to have them as excellent role models.

    • Trillian says:

      At that age??? He’s an adult. He can go out any time he pleases. He can drink too as far as I’m concerned, that 21 yr drinking age is just ridiculous imo. He should just stay away from driving.

      • MyBlackCats says:

        He’s actually more striking than his sister is beautiful. However the blond hair does him no favors and Is likely ruining his good looks w booze.

    • Olive says:

      @seraphina how old should one be before it’s OK to be out at 4am? he’s 19, he’s a legal adult

    • Bystander says:

      I had to read that a couple of times to see if you were serious. It’s New Years Eve, he’s 19, and you want to know why he’s out at that time?

  4. Cherbear says:

    I believe almost every state is a zero-tolerance state for UNDERAGE drinkers. Which he is, at 19.

    Drinking and driving is bull. Between Uber and all the money this kid has, there is no excuse for it. Endangering the lives of others for your good time is the epitome of narcissism.

    • Wellsie says:

      That is the silliest part… these people could get driven around easily. So stupid.

    • Esmom says:

      Yes, his behavior reeks of narcissism and entitlement. I wonder if he’ll even learn anything from this, or face any consequences beyond losing his license.

      • BeanieBean says:

        No consequences. They already have a lawyer who is talking to TMZ about addressing the ‘allegations’. Another rich kid gets a walk.

    • Rene Besette says:

      I agree about the drinking and driving. It will be interesting to see if he can get into Canada again. They have property in Ontario I think. Beautiful lakeside house and a lot of wealthy people around them. I have seen that on Border Patrol, they show people regularly getting turned away, you must get it expunged if you want to come across. Powerful car, drunk boy equals dangerous weapon.

      • Arpeggi says:

        While DUI is bad, it’s not a felony and only felons have a hard time crossing the border.

      • Totally Old says:

        @Arpeggi – yes DUI is bad and sometimes leads to innocent people being killed by stupid, entitled people. It should be a felony.

        I’m at a loss of how many are defending this stupid rich kid and yes he is a kid. Everyone seems to be more concerned that Celebitchy questioned why he was out at 4am at his age. You don’t seem to be concerned that how completely dangerous he is to others on the road. That should be the focus not that he’s an adult and can stay out as late as he wants to! The next time you hear of someone dying due to a reckless idiot like this entitled rich kid, don’t start with how horrible he is, it will be too late.

        And as far as him being out at 4am. I believe in the old adage, nothing good comes of being out at that time of the night – (unless it’s work related).

      • Viv says:

        @Arpeggi DUI conviction is included in the list of crimes that may make someone ‘criminally inadmissible’ to Canada. It seems like it depends on the officer at port of entry and factors such as amount of time that has passed. I know two people, one five years ago and one two years ago, who were turned away at the boarder and haven’t been able to travel to Canada for work because of a DUI, but it’s possible others haven’t been stopped. If he is convicted there is a process to be granted approval to cross the boarder which I’m sure their lawyers would investigate.

  5. Vexa says:

    I sound like my mum, but this is just classic entitlement, thinking that the rules don’t apply. Thank god the police stopped him before he hurt someone.

    (Also, not to threadjack, but I watched the Chanel episode of that Netflix doc ‘7 Days Out, and Kaia was interviewed briefly after walking in the Chanel couture show. I still think she’s a nepotism model but she did come across as quite likeable and genuinely interested in fashion and the history of the house, which made me warm to her a little)

    • otaku fairy says:

      I like her dress in this picture.

    • noway says:

      I don’t think the DUI is classic entitlement. I mean I personally think he is an entitled brat, but not because of this. The New Year’s eve DUI court docket is full of a lot more average joe’s than wealthy kids of celebrities. Unfortunately, he made a poor decision, and he will now have to deal with it. I’m not sure about California, but I know a lot of states have mandated minimum punishments for DUI. I know he will lose his license for a year, but there might be something else too, and probably more driving training. He should be very thankful he didn’t hurt anyone with his reckless thinking.

  6. Erinn says:

    I have no patience for people driving under the influence. I have never driven following drinking. Not even one glass of wine. I’d never be able to forgive myself if I caused an accident. While I’m 100% side-eyeing someone who drinks with dinner then drives, the people that go out and party and then drive are the ones I REALLY loathe. There’s a difference between .01 and a .08+, though it’s still an impairment. That said – the people who are on their phones or drive with pets on their laps are almost as bad.

    • otaku fairy says:

      Me neither. I’m not a lightweight but the thought of having something in my system that could even possibly cause something to go wrong while driving is scary. I’ve never texted while driving either and will pull over to take a call.

    • jan90067 says:

      I can not tell you the number of people I see IN NEW MODEL CARS with phones IN THEIR HANDS!! Makes me INSANE! They swerve, weave, are looking down to their hands. These cars have blu-tooth! What the hell is the need?? You can even call up Siri on your car system, get directions from Google Maps/Waze on it. If you have SUCH a need to pick up the phone, PULL THE ^%$# OVER AND STOP! You see it ALL the time here in the Beverly Hills/Century City/West LA area.

      Sorry to shout. I had a friend badly hurt in an accident caused by a driver in a new (expensive!) car who was holding his phone in one hand, using the *speaker phone* feature on the phone, and not paying attention. Didn’t see the traffic slowed to stop and went right into her trunk in front.

    • schmootc says:

      Driving while using your cell phone really is as bad as drunk driving in terms of how many lives it ends up taking. The stigma just hasn’t caught up yet, which is a real shame because you do see it every day and the people doing it don’t have any actual shame themselves!

      • noway says:

        People can jump on me now, but as Utah just instigated a .05 blood alcohol limit, I think for a lot of people driving on your cell puts you more impaired than that. Not saying Utah shouldn’t have enacted that law, but just wish people would be a bit more involved with the cell phone issue.

  7. SM says:

    He was drunk and speeding? I hope he gets severe punishment so he actualy learns. I mean he could have killed somebody

  8. Lucky says:

    At first glance I thought this was Aaron Carter.

  9. YesImHere says:

    So many wrong things here — the speeding, the underage, the drinking, being out all night at his age, and A TESLA FOR A TEENAGER. *smh*

  10. Adrien says:

    But what does Aaron Carter have to do with the story?

    • SamC says:

      Nothing…people commented they thought it was Aaron Carter when they saw the picture before reading it was Presley Gerber.

  11. Other Renee says:

    Spoiled, rich, entitled white boy = slap on the wrist.

    • AnnaKist says:

      Yep. Is th legal drinking age still 21 in America? It’s 18 here, but no matter your age, if you do not hold a full license – if you’re a Leaner or Provisional license holder – your blood alcohol is required to be 0.00 while in control of any vehicle. For fully-licensed drivers the blood-alcohol limit is 0.05, and that’s in all states of Australia. The penalties are very severe, as they should be.

      There is no excuse, no reason, no mitigating circumstances for this lad to have been drunk-driving. He has money and resources to avoid breaking the law and putting innocent lives at risk. Throw the book at him. Oh, wait. He’s, white, male, rich and the son of Hollywood royalty…

      • Misty says:

        Yes, the legal drinking age in the US is 21. So he’s speeding, he’s drinking, and he’s underage.

      • BeanieBean says:

        The drinking age varies by state—and technically, it’s the age you can legally buy alcohol—as does the age for legally buying cigarettes, legally buying a gun, getting a drivers’ license, etc.

    • AnnaKist says:

      Ahh, thanks, BeanieBean. So, he didn’t necessarily BUY alcohol. I should have thought of that, because it happens everywhere. Three weeks ago, my best frimd’s daughter ran up the arse of a bloody big truck. It was 12:45am, as she drove home from a birthday party, 10 minutes from home. Sh was almost home when the crash occurred, and had to be cut from her car amd airlifted to hospital. She was over the limit, as the blood tests show. The police are still waiting on toxicology results, and she may well be charged. Not only did she almost lose her life and put other lives at risk, but it’s going to cost her a ton of money, because hr insurance is unlikely to pay her out for her one-week-old brand new car. Not even a teenager. She’s 30, with a great job, which is also in jeopardy. I’m still shaking my head.

      • Beth says:

        Except that information is incorrect. The legal DRINKING age is 21 in every state,

      • Sunnee says:

        Beth. Not true. Some states, Texas comes to mind, allow under 21 drinking if with a parent who allows it. So if a family is out to dinner an 18 year old can have a glass of wine.

      • Beth says:

        The legal drinking age is 21 in all states. Yes there are exceptions in some states about parental supervision, etc. but the legal drinking age is 21 so it is not just the legal age to buy alcohol but also to consume it.

  12. HelloSunshine says:

    A man here where I live was killed on New Year’s Eve because he stopped his vehicle on the highway to help someone who had been in an accident and a drunk driver hit and killed him. This is becoming a big debate because my state has very lax laws when it comes to drunk driving (I can’t tell you how many times I’ve flipped on the news to see “man arrested for 7th OWI”). An officer I work with was talking about how often they arrest drunk drivers in the morning hours (like 8am-11am) and afternoon and how it never gets less depressing. Sorry, this ended up being a rant. I’m just so sick of all of it. It’s incredibly selfish, especially for someone with as much money as this kid has. He could never drive a day in his entire life and still never have to worry about his bills.

    • megs283 says:

      yup. a few weeks ago a woman who had “one glass” of beer, but also had no sleep the night before, was vaping while driving, etc., hit and killed two young sisters who were in a stroller – in a safe spot – while they were waiting to cross a road. Heartbreaking. This driver had a record.

      then a few days before Christmas, a drunk driver struck and killed a 21-year-old pedestrian who was walking home from work. this person had a suspended license and shouldn’t have even been driving.

      so so sad. :-(

  13. Mia4s says:

    Ugh gross. Yet another attempted murder by car. Hell, he could afford a private driver let alone a Lyft or Uber. What an entitled piece of s**t.

    And this language?….; “very seriously and is taking the necessary steps to address the allegations.”

    …worries me. There’s some doubt here? Really? I’m not seeing it. How about a little show of personal responsibility? Ugh.

    • Swack says:

      The “addressing the allegations” hit me wrong also. Sounds like he’ll take no responsibility at all for his actions. My daughter and her friends always had a designated driver if they were out drinking – underage or not. And I agree with everyone above, he has the means to not have to drive – especially when drunk. Wonder if he was drinking at home and thought it was a good idea to go out and drive (liquid courage to do so – not right but a possibility).

    • smcollins says:

      Same here. I actually cocked my head and scrunched up my face a little when I read that. Allegation? Um, no, honey…you were straight-up busted for DUI, time to be a big boy and face the consequences and take responsibility for your dumb-ass & dangerous decision.

    • Chaine says:

      Maybe they are calling it “allegations” because his defense will be it wasn’t him, it was Aaron Carter.

    • noway says:

      I’m not saying he is going to take responsibility, but in fairness we don’t know at this point. The addressing the allegations is probably from a lawyer and PR person, and I wouldn’t hold too much into that. My understanding is California is pretty strong on DUI’s. We don’t know what his bac was, as he can be charge with DUI at any level since he is under 21. But if he was over the California limit I’m pretty sure they have minimum sentences for first offenses. Most of those punishment have fines, some form of community service for hours and drivers training, and depending on the bac you could have some jail time, but California’s jails are kind of packed so first time doesn’t mean much time. Since, he is under 21 he won’t be able to drive for a while anyway. So much for the Tesla.

  14. Emily says:

    Here to say that based on the lead image, I thought this was a story about Aaron Carter.

  15. Becca says:

    Both kids are growing up WAY too fast.

  16. SuperStef says:

    I’ll never understand why 19 isn’t the legal drinking age in the USA. You guys can own guns at 18 but can’t have a beer until you’re 21? Makes no sense to me.

    That said, I have zero tolerance for drinking and driving at any age. Glad cops took him off the road, regardless of what he was driving.

    • Susannah says:

      The cynic in me says that the alcohol lobby isn’t s strong as the NRA lobby. No money or votes for politicians in alcohol like there is in guns.

      • Stef says:

        That’s even scarier, in my opinion.

        Countries like Germany have much better alcohol laws, like a graduating drinking system that teaches teens not to binge. You can drink beer at 14 and hard alcohol at 18. I find US laws so backwards sometimes, especially the legal drinking age and the love of guns.

    • Chaine says:

      @SuperStef, you’ve got it wrong. You don’t even need to be 18 to own a gun here. People give them to their elementary school-aged kids and take those kids out to hunt with them. Live in the country, you’ll see lots of pix of your friends’ 8 or 9 year olds proudly holding up the head of their first deer.

      • Stef says:

        Damn, that’s even worse!

        It’s so incredibly bass-ackwards to me, and ost of the rest of the world…

      • BeanieBean says:

        But an 8-year-old can’t buy a gun, just as she can’t buy a beer, but if mom or dad wants to give their kid a gun or beer (in their own house) they can.

      • Beth says:

        BeanieBean, your information is incorrect. It is absolutely illegal to give booze to someone under 21.

    • Alexis says:

      You can also give up your life for your country at the age of 18, however, I believe they let 21 and under drink on base, legally. It is still a very backwards system.

  17. Tw says:

    Ugh, Cindy and Randy are the “cool” parents, right? The kids are decidedly not alright. Kaia is clearly anorexic and now Presley has a DUI. And save the “body shaming” comments. I have two eyes and she is extremely underweight.

    • Starkiller says:

      Unless you are her doctor, you have no way of knowing that she is “clearly anorexic”. Your “two eyes” are not sufficient for a metrical diagnosis.

      • Tw says:

        She is clearly underweight. I am a doctor and there are physical signs that she is underweight. I don’t have to be her doctor to see these signs. True, I assume she is underweight due to insufficient caloric intake. I could be wrong in that assumption but I am not wrong in my assessment that she is underweight.

      • jan90067 says:

        Starkiller, Kia has most definitely lost a lot of weight she her mother pushed her onto the scene. Google pics and you will see a 15-20 lb difference in her.

      • Tw says:

        Yes, she has lost weight since she started modeling.

      • me says:

        Doesnt take a rocket scientist to see she has some sort of eating disorder. Fair guess considering her employment, that anorexia is the cause. It is widespread in her chosen field of work.

    • Kim says:

      Both kids are clearly underweight. It’s more obvious when they aren’t as dressed up and slathered in makeup to make them “look” healthy. Sunken cheeks, dark under eyes, and with a strange pallor.

      Not exactly two healthy people in the prime of their lives.

  18. ariel says:

    What kind of asshole buys their teenager a Tesla?

    • Tourmaline says:

      Rande and Cinde, apparently!

      I totally agree with Kaiser; the Gerber kids rub me the wrong way too. Cindy always tried to portray herself as a model who was a cut above in terms of intelligence and common sense –but she’s really lost the plot with her offspring. Totally obsessed with pushing her kids to be teenage celebs. I don’t even think they graduated high school (oh I’m sure they were “home-schooled” haha).

      • Carrie says:

        The parents are conceited. Cindy slipped a few times early in her career but learned to cover it quickly. I think this has scared her probably but he’s too old to change now. The kids were raised this way. I really don’t think he’ll be around long.

  19. Valiantly Varnished says:

    Another day another tale of privileged rich white kids behavingly badly. Im sick of ALL of these nepotism models: the Hadids, Kendall, the Gerbers. None of them have an ounce of presence. I actually miss the days of REAL models.

  20. Spicecake38 says:

    Where do you begin with this?He drank,and should not have because he’s underage.Underage drinking happens of course,so should we change the age,IDK,But he could have drank and stayed home,Uber,cab,designed driver…
    He is not mature enough to have planned what he would do in case he drank(so he’s too young to drink)
    He should not have been out on the road,especially New Years
    His parents -where were they
    He will get out of these*allegations*(cough)because first offense,big attorney,rich parents,it will be how he learned his lesson,blah.He’ll pick up some litter,as community service and they will praise him for all he has done to accept responsibility.😞

    • noway says:

      I kind of agree with you, but most DUI’s aren’t underage kids. They are by every day people, mostly adults, who just didn’t think about it, and they will have to pay the price for it. They should be thankful a policeman caught them and not an innocent bystander or a tree. Also, Presley is 19 at this point it should be up to him, and not his parents to behave better, legally and morally. Still I think his parents are a bit crazy getting them in the modeling career when they were so young, and the way they let them grow up so quickly in a very tough field just doesn’t sit well with me.

  21. DIRTNAP says:

    This makes me ragey. Thank goodness innocent people weren’t hurt and killed. How many times has he done this before without being caught, I wonder?

    Not that this is in any way important compared to the seriousness of the situation, but I’ll bet Rande’s relieved he sold his tequila business in 2017. Imagine having that kind of business and then having a son driving under the influence.

    • Lady D says:

      Cop stats say you will drink and drive 40 times before you get caught. How’s that for sad?

      • DIRTNAP says:

        Wow, @Lady D, that is terribly sad. And the kicker is, driving under the influence and its consequences are both completely avoidable and people still do it! I will never understand …

    Kids make mistakes at this age regarding drinking all the time.

    My biggest issue here is this kid is RICH. Why doesn’t he hire a driver or an uber– what is WRONG with him that he would rather drive himself drunk than get a driver? Money is not an issue, he must think he is above the law in his fancy little tesla.

    entitled brat, throw the book at him

    • LoveMusic says:

      Kids make mistakes, but there is a lot less drunk driving with most kids now than there was 30 or 40 years ago because of education and enforcement. Pretty Gerber boy thinks the rules don’t apply to him – and I bet he is right. Nothing will happen to him, a fine that Daddy will pay and he will do it again.
      Moron.

  23. Elaine says:

    Maybe bother to read the blurb you’re posting about? It’s only zero tolerance for underage people.

  24. manta says:

    “Also: I wonder how Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber will play this?”

    The way the rich and famous always play it. The usual statement about being sorry/devastated/sad for having let down his family/fans (oh, and since it’s the US, add God for good measure, no good PR piece without God).See Michael Phelps.
    Then, disappear for 5 seconds, and once you’re back, announce you’ve done some soul searching, and voilà.
    He’d be a little older I’d suggest a Nicole Richie: reinvent yourself as a family man who discovers the value of human life after procreating, do cute pap strolls with partner and kids. See Phelps again.

    Presley will probably find his way to the side of a freeway/highway picking up trash for a month of weekends while people drive by and yell, “LOSER!” He’ll lose his driver’s license, as well.
    I hate nepotism. I also don’t buy anything simply because the person pitching the sh!t is famous … or the child of someone famous. What a load of horsesh!t.

  26. Cranberry says:

    In the top pic he looks a lot like his mother more so than the sister.

    • fleur says:

      I also always thought Presley looked more like his mother than Kaia does. Kaia has pieces of her mother, but the real resemblance is formed with hairstyling and makeup. Presley has his mother’s face in male form. He’s more beautiful than his sister, but no one cares about male models.

  27. M.A.F. says:

    In California we now have this new law: Drunk Driving Ignition Interlock Devices
    Senate Bill 1046 requires Californians found guilty of driving under the influence to temporarily install breathalyzers in their vehicles to get their driver’s licenses back. The bill takes effect Jan. 1, 2019.

    This 19 year old will probably have his lawyer argue his way out of it.

    • BeanieBean says:

      And/or the family has lots of cars he can borrow, so he doesn’t need to drive his with the lock on it.

      • Beth says:

        Except if he gets caught driving a car without the Interlock he will be arrested again and violate his probation as well.

  28. HeyThere! says:

    Thank you @JEN, way up thread!! There are no safe limits to drive with regardless of age. I continue to be shocked by the amount of DUI’s my local area deals with. Several arrests a week for DUI’s of all ages. With this age of technology I do not get it!! Uber, Facebook that you need a ride, Twitter, Instagram a story, send a mass text do anything but drive. I have had a rule from day one that if I have one sip of alcohol I’m not driving. So, If im out with friends and I drove myself, guess what, I’m not drinking.

    Now on him. Teenagers make bad choices a lot. Some get caught, some don’t. He got caught before he hurt himself for anyone else. I really hope he takes a big change in life direction from this. Also, your Dad co owns a billion(?) dollar hard alcohol brand, ironically, so don’t you have a limo you can get driven around in??

  29. Janet says:

    So I agree that no one should drive after any alcohol. I think it should be 0 for everyone regardless of age. With that said millions of people get DUI’s are they all entitled brats? Yes they are from the young kids to the old women regardless of age and skin color everyone who drinks and drives should have the book thrown at them.

  30. Raina says:

    You say potato, I say Aaron Carter
    Doppelganger.
    These kids get too much, go crazy, get mum and dad to clean it up, rinse and repeat.
    The only difference between teenagers going wild is the ones with money and connections face fewer consequences.

  31. Littlefishmom says:

    Who?! Never ever heard of this person.

  32. abbi says:

    Is there a mug shot? I bet he’s Zoolander-ing the shit out of it.

  33. Natters5 says:

    Do the Gerber children even go to school? It seems few West Coast celebrities encourage their children to higher education or a career outside the entertainment or fashion field (hence all the nepotism). With all the exclusive schools they send their children to you would think some of them would attend university.

  34. SJhere says:

    Drinking and then driving is the most stupid thing.
    Cab/Uber/Designated driver, stay home and drink, etc.
    Zero tolerance IMO. The impaired driver puts every other person on the road at risk.
    I have zero sympathy. I also think a DUI should result in a license restriction for a minimum of 90 days, “allowed to drive to and from place of employment only.”

    The pain in the *ss involved in asking your friends/relatives to give you a ride to run errands is a good way to show how much trouble it is without a license.

    • Lady D says:

      I respectfully disagree. My life, and the life of those I love are on those roads. You risk my son’s life because you feel you need a few for the trip home? No, and no you don’t get to drive period. How else to ram home the fact that driving is a privilege not a right and it is especially not a right to risk the lives of everyone unfortunate enough to have to share the road with you. I used to be a bartender in a small town, and I had one customer who came in every day for 6 beers, and knew I felt only contempt for drinking drivers and would be loud and clear about how he was going to drink his way home. I put up with it for about 3 months, and then one day when he came in for his usual half dozen beer, I went into the walkin cooler, grabbed his beer, put it in a paper bag and shook the crap out of it. I then took it out front and gave it to him. I had to do that for 3 days before he quit coming in after work.

  35. MeghanNotMarkle says:

    He looks like a douchecanoe. And “allegations”? Really? The kid was caught red handed. That’s not an allegation, that’s a cold hard fact. That they’re acting like this was a simple mistake makes me so angry. There is absolutely no excuse for drunk driving and there shouldn’t be any tolerance for anyone at any age from any socioeconomic background.

  36. Carrie says:

    I don’t think he’s going to live very long.

  37. Hmmm says:

    He should be careful. With that face he can easily turn into Aaron Carter.
