Chantel Jeffries Defends Herself Against Arrest Accusations

Via EOnline

The 21-year-old model, who rode shotgun in Justin Bieber’s rented Lamborghini when the singer was arrested for DUI, released a statement regarding New York Daily News and Daily Mail articles that claimed her rap sheet lists five arrests, including one in February 2011 for misdemeanor assault with a deadly weapon.

“I have been overwhelmed by the negative attention I have recently received in the media,” Jeffries tells E! News in a statement. “My family and I are particularly upset about the false accusations which have been published concerning my criminal history.”

“For the record, I have not been arrested five times as has been stated in the media, nor am I guilty of physically assaulting anyone, in any way shape or form,” she adds. “I am a full-time student who had enjoyed a normal lifestyle, free from public scrutiny and criticism, until now. “What has happened to me is wrong. I want people in general, and the media in particular, to consider the impact their disparaging comments have on the individual; especially when their comments are inaccurate.”

Tellingly, she does not deny all of the alleged arrests. Jeffries, who hails from Jacksonville, N.C., is a self-described “eyebrow connoisseur,” “animal lover” and “deep thinker.”

She recently traveled to Panama with Bieber, 19, after he was released from jail
