'Basketball Wives' star arrested on DUI charge in Glendale

Sundy Carter, a co-star on VH1's "Basketball Wives: LA," was arrested Monday on suspicion of drunk driving, police said.

At 1 a.m., she was spotted by police allegedly crossing over a double yellow line and traveling westbound in the eastbound traffic lane near Kenneth Road and Hillcrest Avenue, said Glendale Police Department spokeswoman Tahnee Lightfoot.

After pulling over, Carter, 40, was allegedly slurring her words and had a distinct odor of alcohol emitting from her breath, Lightfoot said.

A voluntarily submitted breath test yielded a result of .18%, over twice the legal limit, she said.

Carter was also booked on suspicion of being an unlicensed driver, Lightfoot said.

According to Los Angeles Sheriff's Department records, she posted $10,000 bail Tuesday and was released.

The ex-girlfriend of retired NBA player Larry Hughes, Carter joined "Basketball Wives: LA" in season 3.
