According to the official report obtained exclusively by, Mary told police she’d had “one and a half glasses of wine,” the night she was pulled over.


When asked to perform a standard field sobriety test, the report says Delgado also “swayed from side to side, failed to touch her finger to her nose” and “couldn’t walk heel to toe in a straight line.”

Delgado was arrested and taken to jail where she refused to take a breath test. She posted the $500.00 bail and paid another $173.75 to get her car out of impound.

The former Tampa Bay Buccaneers cheerleader was charged with a misdemeanor driving under the influence.

Delgado was a contestant on The Bachelor in both 2003 and 2004. In her second appearance on the show, she was ultimately proposed to by Bachelor Byron Velvick, a professional bass fisherman from Nevada.

This isn't Delgado's first run-in with the law. She was arrested in 2007 in Seminole, Florida on battery charges for allegedly punching Velvick in the face.
