‘Party Down South’ & ‘The Challenge’ Star Mattie Breaux Reacts After Being Sentenced to Jail Time for 3rd DUI

“No more Sunday fun days for me!” 

Party Down South star Mattie Breaux will have to put her partying days on hold for a while – or at least for the next few weekends – as a result of getting her third DUI. 

According to TMZ, Mattie, who also appeared on Season 3 of Floribama Shore and competed on The Challenge: War of the Worlds and Total Madness, plead guilty to misdemeanor DUI and will serve 7 days at Davidson County Jail in Tennessee. 

After the news broke, Mattie faced some harsh criticism on social media, but she later spoke out about what she did.

While Mattie was reportedly facing nearly a year behind bars, the judge suspended all but 7 days of her sentence, which will be served on weekends until completion. 

Following those 7 days served, Mattie will be placed on supervised probation for nearly a year and will also lose her driving privileges for a year. 

As The Ashley told you in August 2019, Mattie landed behind bars after crashing the car she was driving into a concrete median. Mattie admitted to police that she had guzzled down two beers and taken some Hydrocodone (prescribed to her friend, Mattie claimed) before getting behind the wheel.

Mattie has also been arrested twice before for driving under the influence – both times in Louisiana – and has had her license suspended twice as a result of those arrests.    

As word began to spread on Friday about Mattie’s upcoming weekend trips to the slammer, the reality star decided it was a good time to post a photo of herself on Instagram, resulting in a wave of negative comments, many demanding an explanation and others advising Mattie to get some help.

“I mean, apologies are good too right? Cuz you could have killed someone’s family. Jesus,” one comment read, to which Mattie replied, “I know. I live with that on my heart.” 

Mattie responded only with “noted” to another person who asked that she “stop drinking and driving” and “get some help.” 

“Love you girl!!! But you have to get some help,” another added. 

“I have thanks,” Mattie replied. 

“Three DUIs?” another person wrote in the post’s comment section. “That’s f**king disgusting. No regard for other people on the road.”

“Don’t you gotta be in jail this weekend?” someone else commented. 

Elsewhere in the post’s comment section, Mattie admitted her mistakes.

“I did f**k up,” Mattie told one critic. “I admit it. I’ve been working on it and making sure to be better and fix the issue! It was a selfish move but I found peace in my past.”

  1. Must be nice to live in la la land and not have to do jail time like the rest of us rubes. I hope Mattie and her stupid Martha alter ego both actually get the help they need. She is so ugly when she is angry and drunk and threatening people. Really hope MTV cuts her off at this point after years of a pattern of alcohol abuse and violence.


  2. “I am working on getting g better”. What kind of response is that? If you can’t make good choices don’t drink.
    If you can’t make good choices and still drink-then take a cab or Uber out so you can’t drive home drunk.
    I don’t understand this. Driving drunk isn’t an accident. It is poor planning, poor decision making and risks the lives of everyone else on the route to their destination.
    Significant Jail time and loss of license for a painful amount of time is the absolute minimum she should face. 7 days is a slap in the face to anyone who’s ever lost someone to a drunk driver.


  3. Tennessee has some lenient DUI laws!! In Virginia, even a second DUI will land you in jail for a year. Guarantee if she was some typical barfly and not gorgeous, the judge would’ve sentenced her to the full year. And only a year probation?! For driving on alcohol AND controlled substance? She got a slap on the wrist. She should be serving much more time. Does she even have a job that a 7 day sentence would interfere with? Why does she need to serve weekends? Yet another example of pretty white girl privilege.


    1. This is what it’s supposed to be in Tennessee:

      A third-offense DUI requires a minimum of 120 days in jail, with a possible maximum of 11 months, 29 days. And if the driver had a passenger under the age of 18 at the time of the offense, the judge must add 30 days to the mandatory jail (150 days in total).

      If you ask me a year is still too lenient but, somehow she managed to get 7 days?!


    2. First offense can get you this in my state:

      New Jersey DUI Penalties

      Although not considered a criminal offense, the penalties for DUI in New Jersey are quite severe. If you are arrested for DUI and it is your first offense, the penalties will include a drivers license suspension of 3 to 12 months; fines and fees of approximately $750 to $1,000; up to 30 days in jail; up to 48 hours of driver instruction at the Intoxicated Driver Resource Center (IDRC) and a $1,000 per year surcharge for three years.


  4. What the? Third time DUI in Florida is a felony and 10 year suspension unless that has changed or they let her off easy.. 😳


  5. She didn’t learn her lesson after the first DUI, she didn’t learn her lesson after her second DUI, she damn sure isn’t going to learn her lesson by getting 7 days for her THIRD DUI! Is it going to take her killing someone? And, Mattie, FYI friends don’t “prescribe” hydrocodone. You are lucky some dumbass Judge bought that bullshit story.


  6. Seriously? This is her third DUI!? And all she got was 7 days!?!? Okay so are they waiting for her to kill someone before they actually make her do some real time? What in the hell is wrong with our justice system?!?! Don’t get me wrong I love me some Mattie… But my God she’s going to end up killing an innocent person!!!!! Is it because she’s been on reality TV? Is it because she’s white privilege? What is it!? Come on, that is ridiculous! And not only that, she admitted to taking narcotics that wasn’t even prescribed to her, and we have a huge epidemic going on in this country! She needs help! I hope the courts are forcing her to get some help. I didn’t even read the whole article…sorry Ashley!! So I may be posting this and then when I go back to read the rest of it I could be putting my foot in my mouth lol But seriously…Three DUIs, seven days in jail, a suspended license, and less than a year on probation?!?!?! Fail!!!
