These are all the Below Deck cast members who have been arrested

Captain Sandy had a number of DUIs when she was younger

The Below Deck cast members are no strangers to controversy on and off deck. In the nearly 10 years since Below Deck first aired the cast have been involved in intense feuds, secrets affairs and the occasional physical altercation. Remember when Adam gave Wes a wedgie in season two of Below Deck Med? However, sometimes the cast’s love of drama ends up going one step further and a few of them have actually been arrested.

Over the years 10 Below Deck cast members have been arrested. For some their arrests, like Captain Sandy, took place years before the show was filmed, whereas others were arrested after their season had aired and their mug shots were displayed all over gossip websites.

None of the crew have spent more than a night in jail after they were taken into custody and usually their charges are dropped, but these are all the Below Deck cast members who have been arrested:

The resident leader of Below Deck Med, Captain Sandy was arrested a few times in her early 20s for DUIs (driving under the influence).

Throughout the show Sandy has been candid about her experience with alcohol and how she has now been sober for over 30 years. However, in her early 20s she was occasionally arrested for driving under the influence after getting drive-thru daiquiris.

In the Below Deck after show Sandy said: “I grew up in a state where at 17 years old, you could drink. And we had drive-thru daiquiri bars. You could drive through, order your daiquiri, and drive away. Who does that? … Like, I kept getting arrested drinking and driving.”

Kate Chastain was the chief stew on Below Deck for six seasons and in 2016 she was arrested for battery strangulation domestic violence following an argument with her then girlfriend Ricio Hernandez.

Kate allegedly bit her girlfriend’s arm and leg after she returned home intoxicated and allegedly “strangled” Ricio. Ricio claimed Kate had tried to kick her out of the house and threatened to change the locks. Kate then allegedly sat on top of Ricio and put her knee to Ricio’s head and pulled her hair. Ricio reported that Kate covered her mouth and nose so she couldn’t breathe.

Kate confirmed to police she had gotten into a physical dispute with Ricio and the evening after her arrest she was released after posting a $5,000 bond in court.

The charges against Kate were reportedly dropped and she tweeted after the incident thanking people for their support and said the truth would come out.

Rhylee joined Below Deck for season six in 2018, but before she began on the show she had been arrested for trespassing earlier that year.

According to Radar Online, Rhylee was arrested in Texas on 23rd January 2018 for “unlawfully, intentionally and knowingly” entering and remaining on the property of another female “without consent.” Rhylee did not leave the property despite being informed to do so.

After she was arrested Rhylee was appointed a lawyer by the court as she was unable to pay the legal fees.

Two weeks later the charges against her were dropped after she completed a decision-making class, 12 hours of community service and wrote an apology letter to the complainant.

A number of the season six Below Deck crew members were arrested as stewardess Caroline Bedol is the third member to have been arrested.

After her season of Below Deck aired Caroline was arrested for larceny (a theft of property valued at less than $500). She had a $0 bond and was released from custody. She was set to appear in court a few days later.

Before appearing on Below Deck Caroline was facing legal trouble after her dog allegedly attacked someone else’s. According to the police reports Caroline’s dog was not on a leash or under control when it attacked the other dog. The pitbull was also unlicensed.

The complainant alleged it was the second time Caroline’s dog had attacked his own. Caroline was charged with possession of a vicious, barking dog and failure to comply with dog ownership requirements.

She reportedly missed the court date for the case in September 2018 and then missed her October court date and a warrant was then issued for her arrest. The current status of the case is unclear.

The final Below Deck crew member who has been arrested is season one’s chief stew Adrienne Gang. Adrienne was arrested in rather scary circumstances, shortly before her season of Below Deck aired Adrienne was arrested for assault and battery.

Adrienne reportedly got into conflict with her cab driver after a night out and began hitting them. Adrienne was taken into custody, however after taking a toxicology test it was revealed Adrienne had been spiked as she had a high level of GHB in her blood.

She believed she was spiked by a group of men who sent over a bottle of wine to her table. It’s believed one of the men put her in the cab and used his credit card to pay for her trip home, which allowed him to be identified by police.
