Former 'Idol' Arrested for DUI


Julia DeMato

BROOKFIELD, Connecticut - Former "American Idol" contestant Julia DeMato was arrested and charged with alleged drug possession and drunken driving in her hometown over the weekend. Police said the 26-year-old singer was arrested in the early morning of Saturday, December 3.

DeMato was taken into custody after police got suspicious when they saw a dark sport utility vehicle drive into the parking lot of a restaurant that had been closed for more than an hour. DeMato, who made the top 10 in season two of "American Idol," failed field sobriety tests, police said.

After failing her sobriety test, the police searched DeMato's vehicle. They said a search of her SUV found two marijuana pipes, a small quantity of marijuana and a baggie with a small amount of white powder that tested positive for cocaine.

She told the News-Times of Danbury that it was just a misunderstanding. "I am not a drug user," she told the newspaper in a phone interview from her home. "It's going to be taken care of in court and that's that." DeMato, who was released on $10,000 bond, is due in court on December 16.
