Cast members of Bravo’s popular SEAlity series Below Deck are no strangers to police booking cameras. We’ve already seen mug shot photos for Samantha Orme, Adrienne Gang, and C.J. Lebeau from various arrests, with charges ranging from DUI and hit and run to assault and battery. Now, show star Kate Chastain is joining the ranks with THREE mug shot photos stemming from various incidents in Florida between 2010 and 2011.
Season 2 of Below Deck premiered this month on Bravo, once again following the crew of a super yacht as they entertain and cater to the most elite customers around. In addition to featuring some new faces in the crew, Season 2 also features a new ship! While season 1 featured Honor (real name Cuor di Leone), season 2 stars a $10 million dollar, 154-foot private luxury yacht named the “Ohana,” which sails around the British Virgin Isles. Not too shabby!
We’ve uncovered Below Deck stew Samantha Orme’s mug shot photo from a June 30, 2006 incident in Tallahassee. Online records indicate she was charged with DUI, hit and run, and using someone else’s driver’s license! Sam was 18 at the time (21 is the legal drinking age in Florida) and a student at Florida State University where she was working on her Bachelor’s degree in Industrial Engineering.
Bravo’s new hit series Below Deck documents the lives of crew members working and living aboard the luxurious mega-yacht “Honor.” Chief steward Adrienne Gang has earned a bit of a reputation as a hard ass (she would prefer to be considered a perfectionist), but the 30-year-old relaxed her stern persona and opened up about an extremely personal “shocking secret” in a radio interview with WFLA published earlier today. In the interview Adrienne recounts being the victim of a near overdose of date rape drugs that caused a blackout and resulted in her arrest for battery!
