TOWIE: Cara Kilbey arrested for drink driving after late night car crash!

The Only Way Is Essex star, Cara Kilbey, has been charged with drink driving after crashing her car and then leaving the scene of the crime, The Daily Mail reports.

Cara, whose brother Tom is dating original TOWIE cast member, Lydia Bright, reportedly smashed her black Mercedes into another car in Camden before driving away in the early hours of Saturday morning.

According to the publication, the reality star was arrested at around midnight on Friday after officers witnessed her driving erratically resulting in her hitting another car in Camden.


The officers in question then followed her in pursuit after the brunette failed to stop after causing the accident.

A spokesperson for the police has confirmed that a 24-year-old was arrested and charged with driving under the influence and failing to stop after an accident, and has been bailed awaiting a court appearance at Highbury Corner Magistrates’ Court on February 1st.

This couldn’t come at a worse time for Cara, whose future in TOWIE looks rather uncertain following both her brother, ex Portsmouth FC player Tom Kilbey, and his girlfriend, Lydia Bright leaving the show last year.

However a source told MailOnline that Cara, as with all the members of cast, will still meet with producers of the show to discuss her part, if any, in the next series of the show when it begins filming later this year.

Since her arrest Cara has not mentioned the incident despite using social networking site, Twitter, to post about the January sales.

MailOnline has asked Cara for a comment, but as yet has had no response.
