Gina Kirschenheiter Officially Charged Following Her Arrest

RHOC mom Gina Kirschenheiter was arrested in Orange County for allegedly driving under the influence.


Gina Kirschenheiter was officially charged on Friday, February 15 following her arrest in Orange County last month.

Gina was charged with driving under the influence of alcohol and driving with a blood alcohol level above the legal limit of 0.08, according to court records obtained by The Orange County Register. Both are misdemeanor charges.

An arraignment has been set for February 28 in Orange County.

The Real Housewives of Orange County mom was stopped by police in Rancho Santa Margarita, California for a suspected traffic violation on January 31. She was then placed under arrest for allegedly driving under the influence and taken to jail. Gina was released with a citation around noon the next day.

Gina expressed remorse over the incident in a statement to The Daily Dish following her arrest. "I made a very bad choice the other night after a mom’s night out," she said. "I am extremely disappointed in myself and regret my actions wholeheartedly. I have learned a valuable lesson and hope to show you all that this one incident does not define me."

Gina further reflected on the incident in a post published on Instagram February 4, vowing "this will NEVER BE ME again." "To all of you who wrote me with pain in their hearts about how drinking and driving has had a negative impact on them and their families, I hear you. Thank you," she wrote. "I make this promise to each one of you with your messages in my heart.... I am committed to this cause and hope to effect a positive change and dialogue. You don’t have to believe me with these words, but I hope over time you will see through my actions."
