Ant McPartlin arrested after failing roadside breath test


TV star Ant McPartlin has been arrested on suspicion of drink-driving after his vehicle smashed into two cars last afternoon (Mar. 18).
A three-year-old girl was taken to hospital after the I'm A Celebrity presenter lost control of his Mini at around 4 pm in Richmond, southwest London.
The 42-year-old failed a roadside breathalyzer test and was arrested by police. As of 1 am this morning, police said the suspect was still in custody, raising the prospect that he may spend the night in a prison cell.
The troubled television personality allegedly crashed his black Mini after losing control of his vehicle on a roundabout, which veered into the opposite side of the road and collided with a green Mini, which had a young girl and couple inside.
Ant's Mini then spun around and hit a maroon BMW before eventually coming to a halt on the opposite side of the road.
His mother Christine was in the car at the time and the pair is thought to have been heading home after walking the dogs.
The collision comes after a tumultuous few months for the I'm A Celeb star, who booked himself into a rehab clinic last year after becoming hooked on painkillers and is now divorcing his wife Lisa Armstrong.
The divorce from his wife of 11 years is believed to be costing the star around £ 30 million of his estimated £60 million fortune.

The car, which had the young girl and couple in it, has lost a wheel and both shock absorbers 

Ant McPartlin had presented 'Ant & Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway' just a day before his arrest
