Kortni Gilson is known for her drunken antics from peeing in her co-star's bed to starting bar brawls, but her boozy behavior is worse than viewers know! RadarOnline.com can exclusively reveal the Floribama Shore star was once arrested for a DUI and hit with an open container citation.
In a police report obtained from Panama City Beach Police Department, Gilson, 22, was arrested on October 19, 2016 for driving with unlawful blood alcohol.
At 2:11 am, police responded to a Panama City gas station where Gilson was found sleeping behind the wheel with the car running.
"Officer Driscoll explained he attempted to wake Ms. Gilson by knocking loudly on the front driver side window, but was unsuccessful," the reporting officer wrote. "The vehicle was parked between two parking spaces; the vehicle was approximately 4 feet from a rack of propane tanks, which was directly in front of the vehicle."
Fearing for her safety, the officer opened the front driver side door, which was unlocked, and turned off the vehicle. After more attempts, officers were finally able to wake Gilson.
"I asked Ms. Gilson if she knew where she was, and she stated, "in front of Newby's (a local bar)," the report read. "I observed that Ms. Gilson's eyes were bloodshot and watery. I could smell the strong odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from inside the vehicle."
When the officer asked how much she had to drink, she responded, "a lot."
"Ms. Gilson spoke with a thick tongue and her speech was slurred and delayed," the report read. "Upon exiting the vehicle, she lost her balance and stumbled."
After taking standardized field sobriety exercises, she was placed under arrest for a DUI.
Gibson pled not guilty to the DUI. She later pled no contest to the lesser charge of reckless driving.
She was sentenced to 12 months probation with an early termination of probation upon completion of the conditions at six months. She was also ordered to perform 50 hours of community service, complete a DUI First Offender Program and pay $1,050 in fines. Her license was suspended for six months. Other terms of her probation include no alcohol possession or consumption and random breath tests.
Gilson was hit with an alcohol-related citation on September 6, 2014.
According to an incident report obtained from the Panama City Police Department, the reporting officer observed Gilson and three passengers in a Chevy pickup truck in a parking lot. Gilson told police she wanted the passengers out of her truck because she got into an argument with her then-boyfriend and the other two passengers.
The passengers appeared intoxicated, while Gilson claimed she only had one drink.
"I asked Gilson if she had any alcohol insider her vehicle," the report read. "Gilson stated yes and went into her vehicle, in the center console taking out a large 2-liter bottle of mountain dew that was filled with a brownish liquid. I then smelled the liquid and a strong odor of alcohol was coming from inside it."
The officer issued Gilson a citation for open container inside a parked vehicle. She was ordered to pay $160 in fines.
