Piezzi performed a chemical test at the Petaluma Police Station and the results were .33 and .34 BAC. Piezzi is also on probation for a DUI from 2016, part of her probation terms are to not drive with alcohol in her system. Piezzi was booked into Sonoma County Jail for Violation of Probation and DUI.
