Tala Alamuddin Le Tallec, the older sister of human rights lawyer Amal Clooney, plead guilty on Monday to charges that included drunk driving and driving without insurance, according to the Straits Times in Singapore. The fashion designer received three weeks of jail time for her offenses.
Le Tallec, a resident of Singapore, also received a $6.400 fine and had her license revoked for four years. The 47-year-old fashion designer had nearly three times the legal amount of alcohol in her system upon arrest.
According to the Straits Times, the arrest occurred at a police roadblock at around 2:30 a.m. Upon being stopped, Le Tallec had trouble locating the car’s handbrake and momentarily stepped on the gas pedal as she searched for her driver’s license.
“The test found that she had 95 micrograms (mcg) of alcohol in 100 milliliters of breath–almost triple the prescribed limit of 35mcg of alcohol in 100ml of breath,” the paper reported.
The paper also noted that Le Tallac has a history of driving offenses.
Le Tallec was barred from driving for two years following a drunk driving conviction in 2013. Moreover, Le Tallec was charged with “careless driving in 2010 and inconsiderate driving in 2004.”
Hollywood superstar George Clooney revealed that he met his wife Amal through a mutual friend, who asked him if he could bring a friend at the actor’s Lake Como home. “It’s the wildest thing. A mutual friend of ours said, ‘I’m stopping by and can I bring my friend?’ And I was like, ‘Of course,'” Clooney said. He further added: “The funniest thing was my mom and dad were visiting, so my parents were there, and we just talked and we stayed up all night talking and then, you know, I got her email address ’cause she was going to send me some pictures of my parents and then we started writing…”
Soon their fairytale romance began, which culminated in their marriage in September 2014. Here’s a look back at their whirlwind love story.
Le Tallec’s lawyer, Shashi Nathan, said she was “genuinely remorseful” and had made a terrible mistake.
Le Tallec is currently the owner of Totally Tala, a fashion line that she started after working as an events planner. https://www.msn.com/en-ph/entertainment/celebrity/george-clooneys-sister-in-law-jailed-for-drunk-driving-in-singapore/ar-AAIYcY7?li=BBr8zL6
