STAMFORD — Former supermodel Stephanie Seymour has had drunken driving and other charges erased from her record in Connecticut after she completed a yearlong program that included treatment for alcohol abuse.

The charges were dismissed Tuesday during a hearing in Stamford Superior Court. The 48-year-old former Victoria’s Secret and Sports Illustrated model did not appear in court.

She said in a statement provided by her lawyer that she was grateful “this unfortunate event” had come to a close. She says, “I hope that people can learn from this.”

Police say Seymour backed her SUV into another vehicle on a highway exit ramp in Greenwich in January 2016. She also was charged with crashing into a utility pole and leaving the scene later that day.
