X Factor Auditioner Busted For DUI

DELRAY BEACH (CBSMiami) – A former contestant on the X-Factor stage may be singing the blues after being arrested in South Florida.

Twenty-two year old Highland Beach native Lexa Berman, who auditioned for the X Factor talent show, has been arrested for allegedly driving while drunk.

According to the Sun Sentinel, Berman’s driving was the root of a car crash at the intersection of Linton and South Ocean Boulevards just after midnight Monday. Despite the accident, Berman continued driving before crashing into some bushes and a block wall just down the street.

Once Delray Beach police finally caught up with Berman, she told them she had only had two drinks earlier that night at a show in West Palm Beach. The officer then asked Berman to perform a blood-alcohol test; she blew a .288 and .275 – which is more than three times the legal limit in Florida.

Berman failed the sobriety test and was booked in the Palm Beach County Jail around 3 a.m. She bailed herself out around 8 a.m. Monday.
