The reality star was charged in Columbia County, Georgia, with driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, as well as Failure to Maintain Lanes.
Thornton, 26, is currently in a relationship with Challenge vet BradFiorenza. Fiorenza, 37, has two children with ex-wife Tori Hall, who he met on The Challenge. When a fan tweeted the news to Hall, she responded, “I’m livid. There is no excuse ever to drink and drive. Ever.”
Something came up and he had to see his ex-wife and I got to meet them,” the Are You the One? vet told Us in March. “The kids are absolutely beautiful and I met Tori. We had a great meeting and I wouldn’t change anything about the way we met. She’s great. She handled her own and was very womanly about it. I couldn’t imagine being in that type of situation so from my point of view — I’m not a parent — she stood her ground, but was very kind at the same time. She’s a protective mama bear and such a sweetheart.”
Hall, 31, also spoke with Us about her ex’s relationship with Thorton.
“Here’s the deal: they just have more in common. He’s a fun guy. We met really young. I was 20 years old when I met him, and I grew up with him,” the former pageant queen told Us in January. “I gave him a decade of my life, a third of my life. When we grew up and realized the things that we wanted in life, we agree on nothing. The only thing we agree on is our two kids, which is sad. He probably is a better fit for her.”
