MAFS contestant on drink-driving charge

Married At First Sight contestant Ottie Schwartz, 32, has been charged with drink-driving at the Christchurch District Court.

She was granted a registrar’s remand without having to appear before the community magistrate in court, and is due to appear again on November 14.

Schwartz, of the Christchurch suburb of Richmond, is charged with driving on Avalon Street in Christchurch last week with a level of 473mcg of alcohol to a litre of breath.

The legal limit is 250mcg, which brings a traffic ticket, and exceeding 400mcg means prosecution at court.
