Ana Quincoces, of Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Miami, was arrested early Sunday morning after reportedly driving on a suspended license. According to reports, the reality star was in Key Largo, Florida, attempting to track down the new girlfriend of her former boyfriend.
On March 23, Gossip Extra revealed news of Ana Quincoces’ arrest, claiming she knowingly drove on a suspended license in the wee hours of Sunday morning, traveling to Key Largo from her home in Coral Gables.
A source alleged to Gossip Extra that Ana Quincoces was seen banging on the door of a home, where she believed her ex-boyfriend to be with his new girlfriend. When police arrived at the home, Quincoces’ driver’s license was discovered to be suspended. However, after being made aware of the issue, Quincoces chose to get back behind the wheel and attempt to drive away.
At that point, the 50-year-old Ana Quincoces was pulled over and arrested.
In an interview with Keys News Net on Monday, Ana Quincoces noted the issue as an “administrative glitch” and claimed police were “overzealous.” Police, however, told a different story.
“Quincoces was informed by me and Sgt. [Sydney] Whitehouse that her Florida drivers license had been suspended indefinitely” on February 9, and “she was not to drive,” Deputy Bryan Cross noted in his police report.
When she was pulled over nearby a Key Largo hotel, police “began to ask [Ana Quincoces] why she was driving the vehicle after being told not to drive… she was unable to provide a valid answer.”
Following the arrest, Ana Quincoces claimed she had decided to drive after her alleged disturbance because the home where she was staying in Fey Largo was infested with cockroaches.
“I just wanted to get home.”
As the Inquisitr previously reported, there have been conflicting reports regarding the future of The Real Housewives of Miami, whose last season wrapped at the end of 2013.
In the latest report, via Radar Online, a source claimed production hadn’t yet begun on a potential fourth season.
“The show is NOT taping and, as of now, has neither been renewed or cancelled. It is still in limbo, but I can definitely confirm that the show is NOT taping.”
In a separate report by Rumorfix, a source claimed producers were waiting on Joanna Krupa and Lea Black before beginning to film.
Ana Quincoces was released from custody at the Plantation Key jail shortly after 5 a.m. on Sunday.
