MODEL MEARES FACING JAIL Live




Former model turned fashion designer Jodhi Meares is facing up to 18 months behind bars, after allegedly crashing her Range Rover while drunk and on a suspended licence.

The 43 year old struck three parked cars, two of which needed to be towed, along O'Sullivan Road in Bellevue Hill just after 9:30pm on Saturday.

It's alleged the ex-wife of billionaire James Packer, returned a blood alcohol reading of 0.181.

Local resident Craig Russell saw the crash and has told Channel 9, he'd never seen anything like it.

Must've been moving so fast or something to rip an entire wheel off because the wheel was just sitting down from my window. So lucky she wasn't seriously injured but she looked pretty shaken when she got out.

Meares has been ordered to appear in Waverley Local Court on August 5.

The maximum penalty for high range drink driving is 18 months jail and a $3300 fine.
