Deputies reported finding Barbara Walters' daughter and a male passenger in an SUV on the side of Interstate 75 near Naples. Both occupants reportedly had trouble walking. Authorities say Danforth was arrested after refusing a field sobriety test. A breath test given at the jail recorded a blood alcohol level of 0.218%. Florida law considers a driver impaired at 0.08.

Barbara Walters, who adopted Danforth as a baby, has discussed her daughter's struggles with drug abuse in the past.

Jail records didn't list an attorney for Barbara Walters' daughter. Court records show a hearing is scheduled for June 12.
