ENQUIRER EXCLUSIVE! According to the police report BARBARA WALTERS’ daughter Jacqueline Danforth had to be restrained before being cuffed by cops in Naples, Florida AND drugs were found!
Danforth, 44, was collared on suspicion of DUI Sunday May 19 at 1:24 AM.
Police had responded to a suspicious report that a SUV was parked with the lights blacked out, the report said.
Cops said they pulled the SUV over and began questioning her male companion Dennis A. Pinkham. According to the police report, Danforth was swaying wildly in a highly agitated state and was shouting and then grabbing at an officer. Forced to the ground before arrest, the report says, Danforth then blew a 0.218 on the blood alcohol test way over the legal limit.
Pinkham was searched and a small box containing 4.5 grams of marijuana and a pipe were found in his shirt pocket. He was arrested on charges of possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia – a misdemeanor, the report said.
Danforth, 44, was arrested, and subsequently released after paying $1,000 bond, the Collier County Sheriff’s Office said, adding it was her first such infraction as an adult.
Danforth is Walters’ adopted daughter with her former husband Lee Guber and has been in trouble previously — during her tumultous teen years.
Both Danforth and Pinkham are due back in court June 12, 8:30 AM for an arraignment.
