UPDATE: Further details revealed about Jodhi Meares’ alleged DUI on Saturday.
According to numerous reports, former model and fashion designer Jodhi Meares and her fiancé INXS front-man Jon Stevens had a public fight with other diners at a Bondi cafe on Saturday night, before her car crash that evening.
The Daily Telegraph has reported that Meares was drinking wine at a cafe with a friend on the night of the crash, and was reportedly “fairly pickled” at 6.30pm.
Meares and her friend were smoking near other patrons at the restaurant, and continued to do so when Stevens arrived to join the party.
The patron dining near the group told The Daily Telegraph:
“Jon Stevens turned up with a friend and there were four of them there,” he said
“When we finished our meal, we got up and I turned around and said ‘OK, you can smoke your heads off now’.
“Jodhi jumped up and said ‘oh, I’m really, really sorry’. She was lovely and really apologetic. But Jon Stevens grabbed her and said ‘don’t worry about them’.’’
43-year-old Meares also attempted to pay outstanding traffic fines yesterday – which was the reason her licence was originally suspended – but was told by authorities that her licence was cancelled.

Former model and fashion designer Jodhi Meares – is facing possible jail time after being caught drink-driving this weekend.
The Australian reports that 43-year-old Meares, who was once married to James Packer, was caught driving three times over the limit on Saturday night in Sydney’s eastern suburbs, after she crashed into three parked vehicles and rolled her own 4WD.
Police said she recorded a 0.181 blood alcohol reading, almost four times the legal limit.
Meares’ licence had already been suspended when she had the accident and crashed her Range Rover, just after 9.30pm on Saturday night.
Her own car and two others at the scene were so badly damaged they had to be towed away. Meares luckily escaped without injury.
A witness told The Australian, “We were inside at the time but all we heard was ‘boom!’ I saw the woman in the crashed Range Rover and people ran over to try and help. No one else was hurt.”
