Katie Price was released from a south London police station under investigation on Wednesday afternoon, hours after being taken into custody under suspicion of drink-driving.
It is thought the former glamour model was taken out through a back exit of Plumstead police station, before returning to her Sussex home.
Just before 4pm, a police inspector told waiting reporters: ‘There is no person of interest inside the building anymore. They have left. Thank you.’

Shock: Katie Price ‘s appeared worse-for-wear as she turned up unannounced at ex-boyfriend Kris Boyson’s 30th birthday party on Tuesday night, just hours before she was arrested on suspicion of drink-driving (pictured in July). She has since been released under investigation
Police will continue to investigate the incident, which took place at around 2am in Woolwich, south London, shortly after Katie made an appearance at ex-boyfriend Kris Boyson’s 30th birthday party.
The Loose Women panellist appeared worse-for-wear as she turned up unannounced and uninvited at the event, with insiders telling MailOnline she had a blazing row with toyboy beau Alex Adderson, 25, and was seeking comfort from Kris, who is still close to the star.
Sources said: ‘We were having a few drinks when someone said to Kris, someone is here to see you…
There to help? On Wednesday morning, fraught Kris was pictured at Plumstead police station, hours after she was arrested on suspicion of drink-driving. The personal trainer has been at the station since the early hours after the star crashed her £75k pink Range Rover into a bush in Woolwich
More woes: Back in February, the mother-of-five was banned from driving for six months after doing 60mph on the 50mph A24 and she handed herself into police back in July for driving while on a six-month ban
Crash: The damage on Katie’s car was clear to see on Wednesday following the shock incident
Taken away: The vehicle was driven off by an unidentified male on Wednesday evening following the smash
‘The next thing Katie’s there, I’m not exactly sure why… She looked a bit worse for wear – I think she just turned up as everyone was quite shocked. Kris got up and welcomed her after the shock; I have met her before so she was OK with me. Kris and her walked off for a chat so we left them to it.’
On Wednesday morning, fraught Kris was pictured at Plumstead police station. The personal trainer has been at the station since the early hours after the star crashed her £75k pink Range Rover into a bush in Woolwich.
On Katie’s appearance the night before, the source insisted Katie did not drink when she arrived alone and left at 1.30am – just half an hour before her arrest: ‘I believe she was alone, I’m not sure if she’s had a row with her new boyfriend. I know she left alone but not sure what happened then…
Evidence: A policeman was later pictured leaving the station with what was thought to be Katie’s Kenzo clutch bag in his hand – Kris was wearing a Kenzo jumper on the night
Showing her support: Katie’s sister Sophie broke her silence on social media on Wednesday afternoon when she posted about mental health struggles
‘Kris has been a great friend to her and because he cares about her I don’t think he wants to see her in a bad way, no matter what happened. To be honest I think he’s daft, he’s a nice lad but he can do better.’
Kris certainly appeared to be having a great time on the night, sharing a video of himself downing shots on Instagram hours before the crash, wearing the same clothes he was pictured in at the station.
A Metropolitan Police spokesman told MailOnline: ‘At approximately 02:00hrs on Wednesday, October 10, British Transport Police officers came across a car showing signs of damage stationary at the roadside in Shooters Hill Road, Woolwich. She has been released under investigation.
‘A 40-year-old woman who was inside the car was arrested on suspicion of drink driving. She was taken to a south London police station where she remains. Officers from the Metropolitan Police investigate. Enquiries continue. A breath test was administered – we do not discuss results.’
Katie could face six months in prison if she’s found guilty of drink-driving.
UK law states that a person found guilty of drink-driving can be fined, banned from the roads, and even imprisoned.
Driving or attempting to drive while above the legal limit could see a person imprisoned for six months, given an unlimited fine or a driving ban of at least one year.
It had previously been claimed that Katie had to change her phone number as Kris had been bombarding her with calls following their split. The latest comes amid a series of woes for Katie who is currently undergoing a 28-day stint at The Priory, where she is being treated for post-traumatic stress disorder.
Regular: Katie has been pictured at the Meze restaurant with Kris before during her romance with Kris
Raucous: Kris had shared a snap of himself downing shots on Instagram stories on Tuesday night, as he celebrated his 30th birthday, but Katie had not been pictured
Down the hatch: Kris threw his head back as his friends poured shots into his mouth
Where it all began: MailOnline has contacted the manager at The Meze restaurant in Bexleyheath, (pictured) for more information
Sources claimed Katie’s romance with Alex has escalated rapidly since they enjoyed a wild holiday in Mallorca – days after she was filmed rapping about ‘loving coke’. She broke down after an intervention and admitted she needed help to get over her chaotic behaviour – which has been blamed on her PTSD.
The couple were last pictured together on October 5, where they went to London haunt, Annabel’s as well as the Mayfair hotel.
As Alex climbed into the passenger’s seat and Katie sat in the passenger’s seat, she screamed at photographers, ‘I hope your wives die’ as one fell to the ground.
Back in February, the mother-of-five was banned from driving for six months after doing 60mph on the 50mph A24. Moreover, she famously handed herself into police back in July for driving while on a six-month ban.
Taking to Instagram, the former glamour model admitted that she thought the ban was over – but as soon as she realised it wasn’t, confessed her wrongdoing to authorities to avoid a ‘guilty conscience.’
Trying to make it right? Kris looked incredibly worried as he paced up and down the foyer of the police station taking calls on his phone
Ongoing: Katie is still thought to be being held at Plumstead police station following the crash
Taking a break: Kris was later seen leaving the police station as he no doubt needed to get some air, with a couple of officers in tow
Busy: He popped into a nearby shop to get some provisions before heading back to the station
She said at the time: ‘Been on such an emotional rollercoaster the last 6 months and my head has been all over the place, so much so, that I thought my driving ban was up.
‘After driving to Harvey’s Hospital appointment I have NOW found out that I don’t get my licence back until 8th August. With this on my conscience I called police and reported myself,’ Katie confessed.
‘I’ve come such a long way and just want easy life now. ‘I have got out of a hole and am finally happy and looking forward to being my old independent self.’
Tumultuous: Katie split from toyboy Kris, 30, last month and she began a relationship with Alex Adderson, 29, (right) shortly after – pictured together on October 5 – the pair headed to London member’s club Annabel’s and the Mayfair hotel
Not in the driving seat: Katie sat alongside Alex on her recent night out in London, who was behind the wheel on the night – she shouted at photographers, ‘I hope your wives die’ before climbing into the seat’ as a photographer fell to the ground
Katie’s driving ban was first reported by The Sun, who revealed earlier this year that the businesswoman wouldn’t be able to get behind the wheel for six months because she already had points on her licence when she was handed another six for her latest speeding offence.
The reality star received a £750 fine as well as £200 in costs and a £75 surcharge following her conviction, according to the paper.
Katie reportedly failed to inform police when she received the ticket for breaking the speeding limit in a 50mph limit on the A24 in Dial Post, West Sussex in 2017.
It is almost six years since Katie was barred from driving on the roads for 12 months for the first time back in 2012.
Caring: Katie’s ex, Peter Andre is concerned for her as she’s mother of his children, Junior and Princess and just wants to see her back to her best
She claimed that she failed to see a pair of speeding tickets because her mother takes care of the mail. Katie was ordered to pay a total of £75 and she was slapped with the 12-month driving ban.
Meanwhile, Kris was said to be devastated over the demise of his four-month romance with Katie last month. On Sunday night, he was pictured with 2017 Love Island star Chloe Crowhurst at Libertine nightclub, although a source said at the time they were not dating.
Earlier in the day, Kris had opened up on his romance with Katie after he was asked in a Q&A on Instagram: ‘Do you regret getting into a relationship with Katie?’He replied: ‘No regrets. She’s not a bad woman I wish her all the best.’
Tough time: In June, it was revealed that Princess and Junior were living with the couple, as Katie dealt with her split from Kieran Hayler
Meanwhile, a source really told The Mirror that Katie’s ex, Peter Andre is concerned for her as she’s mother of his children, Junior, 13, and Princess, 11.
They said: ‘Pete just wants Katie to be happy and healthy – he wants his kids to have a stable mum.
‘She needs to get help for her problems – that’s all Pete wants for her. Everything in his life is 100 per cent perfect except for this.

It is also no doubt hitting Katie hard that her terminally ill mother, Amy, ‘hasn’t got long’ left to live.
She admitted back in April that her beloved mother ‘could die within a month’ because contracting an innocuous cold could have a fatal outcome for the lung condition she is battling, Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis.
Amy was diagnosed with IPF, a rare condition that causes progressive and irreversible scarring of the lungs, in 2017. Speaking to Now Magazine in an emotional interview.
Katie shared: ‘My mum is dying, it’s that simple. They normally diagnose is three to five years but Mum has already had to change her life.
More woes for Katie as she faces bankruptcy…
She narrowly avoided bankruptcy back in August, when she was given three months to come up with a plan to pay off her debts, totalling more than £250k, including more than £20k in tax debt.
More trouble ahead? Katie has just three weeks before learning whether she’ll officially be declared bankrupt
She now Katie has just three weeks before learning whether she’ll officially be declared bankrupt.
The embattled starm, who was once thought to be worth £45m, was not present at the High Court Rolls building in London as her team submitted proposals for an individual voluntary agreement (IVA).
The hearing, which lasted less than 30 seconds and which she did not attend in person, relates to tax owed to HMRC.
A representative of HMRC said: ‘The debtors insolvency practitioners made contact with HMRC and is considering submitting an IVA proposal and HMRC is not contesting it.’
An IVA sees creditors paid back over an agreed period of time and her application will be heard in 12 weeks on October 30.
The Sun had previously reported that she’s relying on her wealthy toyboy beau Alex to pay for everything — and she ‘hopes to start over’ as she ‘expects’ to be declared bankrupt.
Katie is also said to already be trying to sell her £2million West Sussex mansion which she bought in 2014.
She reportedly urged her ex Kieran to help her find new homes for her farmyard animals— which includes two llamas, six rabbits and four horses, as well as her goats, sheep, ducks and pigs.
A source revealed in the summer: ‘Katie hasn’t had the easiest time of late, and isn’t as flush as she was. She told Kieran to get rid of the animals but he’s been struggling to offload the llamas for £2,000 a pop.
‘He’s selling her prize horses for £7,000 to an equestrian centre near her West Sussex home. And she has been touting the guinea pigs, goats and rabbits to friends and family.’
According to Heat, the glamour model continued to splash the cash at an alarming rate, with her expenses including £1,500 a month on twice-weekly manicures and pedicures.
The star is also said to fork out £11,000 a month on a sizeable team of staff to help keep things ticking over at her Sussex mansion, reportedly employing two nannies, a housekeeper, a stable hand and a gardener.
Among the other expenses reportedly on the mother-of-five’s monthly list are £1,000 on maintaining her hairstyles, £800 for massages every other day, £800 for a makeup artist to keep her looking glam and £400 on facials.
The star, who is said to spend £500 a month on age-reversing treatments, is also said to be shelling out an eye-watering £2,000 just to keep her grand abode warm.
With a mortgage costing her a reported £10,000 a month, Katie — who was once estimated to be worth £40million — is also said to be spending £60,000 a year on such farm machinery as a milking machine and tractor.
Additionally, she is believed to have continued spending £25,000 a year on the cosmetic surgeries for which she has become famous — all while reportedly facing financial ruin as her once gargantuan fortune allegedly dries up.
