Katie Price's ex-boyfriend Kris Boyson arrives at police station after her arrest for drink-driving following his boozy birthday party
Boyson was pictured at Plumstead Police Station in South East London this afternoon as police decide whether to charge the star.
The troubled mum-of-five was forced to spend the night in a police cell after being found by officers inside the damaged vehicle and asked to take a breath test.
Price had partied at the 30th birthday party of her ex-boyfriend Boyson at The Meze restaurant in Bexleyheath in the hours before her arrest.
Pictures have also emerged of the star's battered vehicle which was recovered from the scene this morning.
A Met Police spokesman confirmed: "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."

The arrest comes just days after Price decided to take a break from a 28-day rehab stint at The Priory after undergoing treatment for PTSD.
Before her arrest, she attended a 30th birthday party for her ex partner at the swanky venue in Bexleyheath, South East London.
BTP officers alerted Met Police colleagues and Katie was taken to a nearby police station, where she was examined by a doctor.
It is understood she was not injured in the crash and did not need medical treatment.
Her fingerprints, mugshot and a DNA saliva sample were taken, as is routine for any suspect arrested over a criminal offence.
Police now have until the early hours of tomorrow morning to decide whether to charge Prince.
Pictures and video showed boozy scenes as dozens of pals downed shots inside the venue.
Last month, Kris dumped the star after five months of dating. The couple had hit the headlines for a number of steamy snaps of the couple holidaying together.
Since then she has been seeing 25-year-old Alex Adderson.
Price's arrest comes following a turbulent year for the star, which has already seen her fall foul of the law over driving offences.
In February, the 40-year-old was banned from driving for six months after being clocked doing 60mph on the 50mph A24 in her £75,000 Land Rover.
The Sun on Sunday revealed in July that police had been alerted to pictures of the star driving two weeks before the end of her ban.
Price later confessed on Instagram, explaining she had been driving son Harvey to hospital. She blamed an “emotional rollercoaster” for her decision to drive while banned.
Just weeks later she was filmed slumping to the floor after rapping the words “I love coke” during a wild party with two men she met in a bar.
The Loose Women panellist recently revealed she has been receiving treatment at The Priory after being diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder.
The telly favourite was also banned from driving in September 2012 after failing to respond to two speeding tickets, arguing that her mum handled her post.
Katie has endured a traumatic year, including her split from husband Kieran Hayler.
She is reportedly putting her £2million home on the market and is flogging belongings due to money woes.
Earlier this year, she found out her mum Amy, 64, was terminally ill with lung disease idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis.
