Celebrity personal trainer Michelle Bridges has reportedly been charged with mid-range drinking driving on Australia Day.

The Courier Mail alleges that Michelle had her five-year-old son Axel in the car with her.

The 49-year-old The Biggest Loser star was allegedly pulled over in a 4WD in Sydney’s eastern suburbs at around 11.25am yesterday.

“A 49-year-old woman, driving a Range Rover SUV, was subjected to a roadside breath test which returned a positive result,” police confirmed in a statement.

“A 5-year-old passenger was in the car at the time.”

Bridges, from Potts Point, was stopped at a stationary roadside breath testing operation on New South Head Rd where she allegedly failed an initial breath test.

Michelle was taken to Waverley Police Station where she allegedly returned a reading of 0.086.

Bridges was given a future court attendance notice for mid-range PCA and is due to appear at Waverley Local Court on February 18.
