FORT LAUDERDALE — The wayward daughter of actor Laurence Fishburne, was arrested after allegedly getting into a drunken wreck in Florida in which her car was left covered in wine.
Officers with the Florida Highway Patrol say Montana Fishburne, 25, was driving a white Toyota Corolla in Fort Lauderdale early Saturday, when she slammed into the rear of a Land Rover that had slowed in response to a separate accident further ahead.
Neither Fishburne, her passenger or the driver of the Land Rover were injured in the crash.
When officers arrived at the scene, they say Fishburne was muttering incoherently about “her driver’s license name being different if I were to arrest her,” the police report stated. Officer said they could also smell a strong odor of alcohol on her breath.
Inside her car, police found an open bottle of red wine and purple liquid stains all over the driver and front passenger seats that smelled strongly of alcohol, the report said. As police were trying to clear the road, they say Fishburne squatted down near the shoulder and urinated.
Cops say Fishburne failed a series of field sobriety tests and was placed under arrest. At the stationhouse, Fishburne allegedly blew a .177 and .181 on the breathalyzer, more than twice the legal limit.
Fishburne moved to Fort Lauderdale in 2014 after a short-lived attempt to become a porn star and a stint as a stripper in Texas. She has said in interviews that she hoped the porn films would help her become the next Kim Kardashian and she could launch an acting career.
Her career choices have left her estranged from her famous father, Laurence Fishburne, best known for his roles in “The Matrix” and “Deep Cover.”
In 2009, Montana Fishburne was arrested on charges of prostitution. The following year she was charged with battery and false imprisonment after allegedly barging into the home of her boyfriend’s ex, dragging her into a bathroom and beating her.
