Teresa Giudice has avoided a probation violation after she was stopped by police while trying to make it home to avoid breaking her curfew.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reality star was released from prison on 23 December (15) after serving part of her 15-month sentence for fraud. She will serve the rest of her term under house arrest, and is under strict rules not to violate her probation.
However, after making a red carpet appearance in New Jersey on Thursday (14Jan16), she left the event dangerously close to her 10pm curfew time.
Editors at TMZ.com report Teresa hailed an Uber car service, and told the driver to go as fast as he could so she would make it home by her curfew. The driver was then pulled over by police, and the reality star explained the situation to the officer.
He immediately recognized who she was, and reportedly agreed the star had already had a "tough year". The pair was let go, and Teresa avoided a probation violation that would have landed her back in prison.
A representative for Teresa has yet to comment on the report.
