While most of the past winners of Hell’s Kitchen on Fox are busy with their new careers, season five winner, Danny Veltri has been busy getting his drink on. In fact, Danny was recently arrested for drunk driving in Florida – wait a minute, shouldn’t he be in Atlantic City, N.J.? Read on for more!
Hell’s Kitchen season five winner, Danny Veltri was arrested for drunk driving in Florida this weekend. The reality star, who won $250k back in 2009 was found intoxicated at a gas station around 4 in the morning, TMZ reports. Police say that someone called in about a drunk driver at the gas station, and when they arrived, they found Danny ready to drive off in a 2005 Dodge Neon. After performing a breathalyzer test, police found that Danny Veltri’s blood alcohol level was .12 – well over the legal limit of .08.
Danny Veltri was taken in to custody, but was later released on $500 bail. For those of you who are wondering why Danny was back in Florida instead of Atlantic City, where he was supposed to be the head chef of a restaurant at the Borgata Casino Hotel, it is simple: the position did not pan out as planned. Danny returned to Florida when he was not given the head chef position, but instead, he was one of four sous chefs running the kitchen. Veltri gave the gig a go, but eventually had enough and headed back to Florida where he now runs Gnarly Surf Bar & Grill.
