“Iron Chef” star Cat Cora was not very happy after she crashed into another car while drunk driving last month — and what set her off even more was when she realized that she was being videotaped by the other driver.
As previous reports have stated, celebrity chef Cat Cora was arrested for drunk driving last month in Santa Barbara, which resulted in her rear-ending another car. The police said that she admitted to downing three bottles of beer that night and when she was given a breathalyzer test, she blew a whopping .19 — more than twice the legal limit in California.
However, she was not very cool about the fact that the driver of the other car she crashed into started recording her right after the smashing incident. Cora angrily called the driver a sad “nerd” with no life. The said driver who was videotaping the chef told media outlet TMZ that he recorded Cat Cora on his camera phone because he believed she was drunk and wanted to use the video as an evidence of his speculation.
Cat Cora then released a statement later about her drunk driving incident, saying “I deeply regret my decision to drive that evening after my designated driver became unavailable. I learned a very important lesson from this experience and take full accountability for my actions.”

Professional chef Cat Cora had already taken her mug shot, 11 days after she was arrested by the police for drunk driving in Santa Barbara.
According to reports, celebrity chef Cat Cora was busted by the authorities on June 17 due to drunk driving, resulting in her car rear-ending another vehicle. Reports added that she even called the people in the other car “nerds.” The police officer reportedly noticed that Cora “displayed symptoms of alcohol intoxication” and determined that she was too intoxicated to drive. She purportedly admitted having three bottles of beer before getting behind the wheel. The police said that her blood alcohol level was more than twice the legal limit after failing two Breathalyzer tests which registered blood-alcohol levels of 0.20 and 0.19 — more than double the 0.08 limit. Cora also submitted a blood sample, whose blood-alcohol reading clocked in at 0.19. Mississippi native Cat Cora was subsequently released hours after she was arrested, but her mug shot was not taken at that time.
On June 28, “Around the World In 80 Plates” star Cat Cora returned to the police station where she was held in custody to take her DUI mug shot.
The 45-year-old celebrity chef has since apologized for her drunk driving arrest. “I deeply regret my decision to drive that evening after my designated driver became unavailable,” she said in a statement. “I learned a very important lesson from this experience and take full accountability for my actions. This will never happen again.”
Cat Cora will be arraigned on July 26 on one count of DUI and one count of driving with a blood alcohol level of .08 or higher.
