Barbara Walters' daughter Jacqueline Danforth has been arrested in Florida for a DUI. TMZ reported on Monday that Danforth was taken to the ground by police who said that they were scared she would run into traffic.

She was pulled over by police at around 1:30 a.m. in Naples Florida on Sunday. She had a male passenger in the car. A police report stated that when police handcuffed him, Danforth began shouting.

"According to the report, Jacqueline was in the driver's seat of a Honda Pilot which was stopped by police around 1:24 AM ... after cops received reports about an SUV stopped on the highway without its lights on," reported TMZ.

"I was afraid that the suspect may run into traffic on the highway, so she was taken to the ground due to her unpredictable behavior, then secured in handcuffs," the arresting officer wrote in the police report reported The Huffington Post.

According to the report, Danorth took a breathalyzer test and got a .218 which is more than twice the legal alcohol limit for driving. She was released from custody after posting a $1,000 bond.

TMZ reported that the 44-year-old had discussed her troubled years as a teenager on TV specials with her mother.

The Daily Mail reported that this was her first infraction as an adult. As a teenager she abused drugs and ran away from home. She stopped using drugs after her mother sent her to an intervention program and then opened her own program for troubled girls. Walters adopted Danforth when she was a bay.

Danforth is Walters only daughter and she adopted her in 1968 when she was married to her second husband, Lee Guber. They pair got a divorce eight years later in 2006. US Weekly reported that in 2003, during an NBC News interview, Danforth admitted that she used drugs such as marijuana and meth and said it was a possible reaction to growing up adopted.
