According to The Mail, PK admitted that he had drank wine with his meal and blew .081 percent blood alcohol content. He was then arrested and then taken to the police department in Van Nuys around midnight, where he was tested again and blew .073 percent.

The legal limit for a California driver's BAC is .08 percent.

Kemsley was detained at the station for an hour but was not booked. He was then released and driven home by California Highway Patrol, per The Mail.

A source told the outlet that Dorit and the couple's two children – 7-year-old Jagger and 5-year-old Phoenix – were not in the car at the time of PK's arrest.

His attorney, Alan Jackson, confirmed the report.

"PK was arrested and cited on November 23 on suspicion of DUI. While out with a business colleague, PK consumed a glass of wine with dinner," Jackson told The Mail.

"Following a traffic stop, it was determined that he may have been close to the legal limit," the lawyer explained. "He regrets the fact he did not take alternate transportation home that evening."

"PK takes the allegations extremely seriously and fully cooperated with the authorities," he added, noting that "this would mark the first and only such incident in PK's long driving history. He has learned a valuable lesson."

PK's arrest came just one month after his wife was robbed at gunpoint while he was out of town.

On the night of Oct. 28, the RHOBH star and her kids were asleep in the couple's Encino Hills mansion when three unknown men broke in by smashing the window of the kids' schoolroom. They held Dorit at gunpoint and threatened to "kill her" while ransacking the place for 20 minutes.

"Don't hurt my babies. Don't kill me. I'm a mother," she begged during the ordeal, prompting one to respond, "Kill her."

Despite the terrifying command, Dorit and her babies were spared. In fact, the burglars did not even enter Jagger and Phoenix's bedrooms.

No one was injured during the incident, but the intruders did manage to make it out with all of Dorit's expensive jewelry and handbags.

Immediately after they left, the reality star filed a report with the police, who confirmed the incident to She then called PK, who was in London on business.

The Kemsleys had just been abroad for a family wedding. Dorit returned to California with the kids, while PK stayed behind for work.
