And no confirmation of the car accident has been provided to the media by the police.
Statement by the police
As per the statement made by the police, she was taken under arrest after they found the level of her blood alcohol to be above the permitted and legal limitations. She had also been involved in a car crash with a parked car, and then the police pulled over. The police even said that she did not cooperate with them at all and that her behavior was harsh.
She did not even allow the police to get her breathing checked for alcohol consumption and denied any legal action against her. The locals in the area alleged her to be drinking at a nearby bar. It was near to the crime scene before getting on to drive her car. It is not surprising that she refused to take the alcohol test.
Later on, it was also revealed that it was not Jennifer’s first legal action against her. Earlier she had been charged with shoplifting and poor moral public conduct. Not to judge, but these incidents speak volumes of one’s personality. Her records simply got an additional charge to her name.

After this incident, she visited the rehab center multiple times and also claimed to have given her life, a completely new route. Sadly, after the incident, she has not been able to make much of a name for herself in the entertainment industry. It is very surprising to see how a small controversy can turn the life of an individual upside down. Whereas earlier, she was awarded and also recognized at many film festivals.
The popular names in the industry started maintaining distance from her. She also lost many contacts with big names which might have helped her in the process of getting a name for herself on the big stage. Her career had been on edge since the incident, which she probably must be regretting about as she lives on.
