According to court papers obtained by The Sun, the Beauty Lab & Laser businesswoman allegedly had a blood alcohol concentration of 0.06 and tested positive for amphetamines at the time of her arrest.

Police reports stated that cops stopped her after they noticed she had no headlights on while driving her 2004 Range Rover. Gay allegedly had glassy eyes, odor of alcohol on her breath and was “swaying from side to side.'' When asked by authorities if she had been drinking, the ex-Mormon stated, “I had a sip.”

The report also alleged that the Bravo star “freely informed officers that she will take an Adderall pill in the evening if she wants to stay ‘buzzed’ and awake to go out to a club or something else.”

“During the traffic stop, Officer Harker believed he could smell alcohol and asked Ms. Gay if she had been drinking," court documents stated. “Ms. Gay responded that earlier in the evening, she had a ‘few sips’ with friends at a local club. Ms. Gay also told Officer Harker that she had a prescription for Adderall.”
