Comstock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) — Vanessa Macias, who was a finalist on last season’s Amazing Race, was arrested Friday morning in her hometown of San Antonio, Texas, on suspicion of driving while intoxicated, reports TMZ.com. 

According to a police report, Macias was observed driving erratically on a local highway and she failed to use her turn signal, so the cops pulled her over around 2 a.m. Officers said they detected a strong odor of alcohol on her breath. 

She was arrested and booked for misdemeanor DWI, and was released several hours later after she posted $1,000 bond.

According to TMZ, Macias attended a Jason Aldean concert on Thursday night, where she reportedly consumed some alcoholic beverages.  Afterwards, she allegedly headed to a local strip club to watch some ladies perform.
