Montana Fishburne, daughter of actor Laurence Fishburne who once ventured into porn to become the next Kim Kardashian, is once again in hot water — this time for apparently violating the terms of her probation.
As The Blast first reported, a warrant was issued for Montana Fishburne’s arrest last week after a judge accused her of violating her probation by no-showing for a drug test and leaving town without permission from the probation department.
According to The Blast
On September 12, Fishburne’s lawyer filed a motion on her behalf, calling for Fishburne to surrender in court and for the warrant to be quashed prior to her showing up.
Fishburne claims when she was sentenced, she believed she told the court she would be traveling to New York often, where her mother lives.
Montana argues she didn’t violate her probation on purpose and she thought she could travel without authorization. She claims at no point was she not trying to “avoid supervision.”
Her lawyer claims Montana is still enrolled in an out-patient addiction recovery treatment program and regularly provides urine samples. She says she has tested negative for all drugs including during the time frame she was in New York.
Fishburne, then 26, was pulled over back in March 2017 for rear-ending another car in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. It is reported that the responding officers found an open bottle of wine inside her Toyota Corolla and discovered that she had a breath alcohol level of .18 – more than twice the legal limit of blood or breath alcohol (.08) under Florida law.
During her sobriety test, Fishburne proceeded to urinate on the side of the road.
Fishburne pleaded not guilty to four counts of DUI-related charges in April 2017, and was released on a $2,500 bond.
She was ordered to complete a 60 to 90-day rehab program, and last was later admitted to the swanky $30,000 per patient Wavelengths Recovery in Huntington Beach for treatment of substance abuse.
Under the terms of her sentence, Fishburne was required to complete 50 hours of community service and get approval to travel outside of the court’s jurisdiction.
