Real Housewives Star’s Son Arrested for DUI
It is stressful when a loved one is arrested for driving under the influence. It can be even more stressful when you are in the public eye and trying to maintain a positive reputation with the public. Sheree Whitfield, one of the stars of the popular “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” found this out recently when her 19-year-old son, Kairo Whitfield, was arrested for DUI. It may be uniquely embarrassing for Whitfield given that she went after co-star NeNe Leakes after her son was arrested for shoplifting.
The news of Kairo Whitfield’s DUI was broken when a fan sent a booking photo of the man to the media. The booking photo from a Carroll County facility was released publicly after the young man’s DUI arrest in April. According to records available online, Kairo Whitfield was arrested on April 28 and charged with misdemeanor DUI and reckless driving.
The young man has begun what appears to be a promising modeling career. Whether or not his underage DUI arrest will have any effect on his future employment remains to be seen.
