First The Bachelor breakup and now this...Shayne Lamas just can't seem to catch a break.  

E! News has learned exclusively that the 24-year-old Leave it to Lamas reality star was taken into custody on suspicion of DUI charges just after 1 a.m. Saturday in Venice, Calif. 

"Early Saturday morning, after consuming one drink, I willingly drove through a mandatory check point on my way home with complete confidence of passing," Lamas tells E! News. "However, the breathalyzer indicated that I was over the legal limit of blood alcohol content and was arrested onsite.

"I take full responsibility for my lack of judgment. I have always strived to be a role model for my friends, family and fans and have never nor will ever condone drinking and driving. I apologize for all those I have disappointed, including myself."

The reality star was released later that morning. She's due in court Dec. 9 for the misdemeanor charge.
