Supermodel Stephanie Seymour is facing new charges in Connecticut related to her Jan. 15 arrest for allegedly driving while intoxicated.

Seymour, 47, turned herself in to the Greenwich Police on Monday after a warrant was issued for her arrest.

On Jan. 15, Seymour was involved in a car accident in Greenwich. While stopped at an intersection, Seymour allegedly put her Land Rover in reverse, colliding with a Mercedes-Benz.

The accident caused Seymour’s vehicle to roll onto its side, police say.

The new charges allege Seymour struck a telephone pole in Greenwich prior to her accident with the Mercedes.

Investigators had noticed some front-end damage to the vehicle last month and connected Seymour’s vehicle to the mangled utility pole, police said.

In addition to driving while intoxicated, Seymour now faces additional charges for evading responsibility and failure to drive in a proper lane.

It was not clear Friday whether Seymour has an attorney. She is due to appear in court on Feb. 7 to answer to the charges against her.
