Another one bites the dust.
Farrah Abraham of MTV’s original “Teen Mom” series was arrested for a DUI Monday night in Nebraska, making her one of the network’s countless teenage stars who have been in trouble with the law.
Abraham, 21, was pulled over by law enforcement in Omaha shortly after 1 a.m. after she almost crashed into a police cruiser, according to TMZ.
According to reports, Abraham was nearly double the state’s legal alcohol limit, blowing a .147.
The mom took to Twitter after her arrest Monday saying, “HAVING THE BEST DAY EVER!! #Love #LIFE.”

A rep commented on the arrest on the TV star’s official Facebook fan page Wednesday, telling fans not to jump to conclusions.
“Yes, Farrah was allegedly arrested for a DUI. However, until she speaks out about the event, we can’t be too judgmental because there is a chance something may have been wrong,” said the rep.
Reports claim that Abraham’s daughter was not in the car at the time of the arrest.
Abraham isn’t a stranger to intoxication, admitting to OK! that she has a history of using illegal drugs after using them to cope with the death of her child’s father, Derek Underwood, in 2008.
“I was partying too much. I drank too much and did some coke…I couldn’t handle the effect of the alcohol and drugs,” she said.
A friend of the star, Austin Mathouser, told Radar Online last year that Abraham had confessed to him to abusing Adderall, Xanax and alcohol.
“Farrah said she does Adderall before every event she attends,” said Mathouser. “It’s sad because she has a little one. … I’ve personally lived with drug addicts and it’s not fair to the child at all.”
Abraham first came into the spotlight after giving birth to her daughter Sophia on “16 and Pregnant” in 2009. The single mother went on to star in the spinoff “Teen Mom” for four seasons until its completion in 2012.
