Phlllip Phillips’ Mom Arrested for DUI

Phillip Phillips mom, Sheryl Phillips, was arrested for DUI earlier today, reports TMZ:

Phillip Phillips’ mother Sheryl Phillips — who appeared on several episodes of “American Idol” during Phillip’s championship run last season — was arrested for DUI earlier today, TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement officials tell us, an undercover unit observed Sheryl swerving her van across lanes of traffic in Albany, Georgia — and pulled her over.

We’re told … based on what officers observed after the stop … they had reason to believe Sheryl was under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs.

According to law enforcement, officers administered a field sobriety test and Sheryl was unable to complete it.

Cops took her into custody and transferred her to a nearby hospital, where doctors decided she was well enough to go to jail. She’s currently being booked in Dougherty County.

A source close to the family tells us, Phillip’s parents split up last week.

I don’t really have anything to say about this. Nope. I really don’t. Hang in there, Phillip.
