Wife Swap star Alicia Guastaferro was arrested for prostitution after she was busted in a vehicle with a drunken 54-year-old man. She appeared on the reality show when she was just 15-years-old when her mother swapped lives with another woman.
When police in Rochester, New York noticed defense attorney James Doyle's 'erratic' driving they attempted to pull him over. When deputies caught up to him at a service area, he was slouching over fast asleep behind the wheel, and the Wife Swap star was in the passenger seat.
Doyle was charged with DWI, patronizing a prostitute and giving alcohol to a minor, adding to two previous drunk-driving charges which each ended in convictions to the lesser charge of driving while impaired.
Guastaferro, 20, is facing charges of possession of a controlled substance, prostitution, and criminal impersonation.
Allegedly, she told authorities that Doyle calls for her services twice a month and pays her between $500 and $700 per visit. In addition, she admitted that they both had been drinking alcohol prior to Doyle getting behind the wheel.
"I've been accused of allegations that are lurid, salacious and demonstrably false," Doyle told Rochester YNN.
"I was tired. I wanted to rest and that's exactly what I did. Within 10-15 minutes, there was banging on my window. I was taken out of my car," the Wife Swap star stated.
