Bachelor contestant Tracy Lynn Darakis may seem sweet and innocent, but looks can be deceiving! RadarOnline.com has learned that the fourth grade teacher is hiding a secret arrest — one that she probably hasn’t told her students about!
According to court records obtained by Radar, the elementary school teacher from Wellington, Florida had a run-in with cops on October 28, 2005 for underage drinking.
The then-20-year-old, who graduated from University of North Florida in 2007, was charged with misdemeanor possession of an alcoholic beverage under the age of 21, according to court docs.
And luckily for her, her case file was destroyed last Aug. 29, Radar has learned -- less than one month before filming started.
But will the wholesome Iowa corn farmer be hot for teacher?
Coincidentally, their similar shady pasts could bring the potential reality show lovebirds even closer together. As first reported by Radar, the 33-year-old Soules has a history of arrests, including one for drunk driving that landed him in jail and on probation for a year. Like Darakis, in February 2001, the then 20-year-old was found guilty of possession of alcohol under age, stemming from an incident on New Year’s Day. And he was let off with a fine.
The Bachelor returns to ABC Jan. 5 at 8/7c.
