The past five months have been incredibly challenging for the estranged husband of Real Housewives of Atlanta star Eva Marcille. Recent court documents reveal that just weeks after Marcille filed for divorce, her husband, Michael Sterling, was charged with a DUI following a rear-end crash in February 2022. The incident took a new turn in June as Sterling faced a civil lawsuit from the victims involved in the crash.

According to the police report filed in Sandy Springs, Georgia, Sterling, a 41-year-old attorney, was found allegedly reeking of alcohol after the midnight accident. Instead of contacting legal representation, he surprisingly called his wife, who arrived at the scene along with a friend. The police officer reported informing Marcille that her husband was going to be arrested. Sterling, however, pleaded not guilty to the charges of driving under the influence of alcohol, following too closely, and reckless driving.

Sterling’s defense attorney, William Treadwell, argued that his client’s apparent intoxication was due to a medical condition and that none of the emergency room personnel accused him of being under the influence. However, the crash report contradicts these claims, stating that the arresting officer detected the odor of an alcoholic beverage on Sterling’s breath.

According to the victims involved in the accident, the Mustang driven by Sterling collided with their Toyota Camry at an excessive speed, causing their vehicle to spin around and hit a concrete median. When questioned by the police, Sterling claimed to have had his “last drink” around four or five o’clock that day but denied knowledge of what caused the crash. Interestingly, when asked to perform voluntary field sobriety tests, he refused, citing his profession as an attorney.

Following Sterling’s request, the case was transferred to Fulton County State Court. Meanwhile, Marcille’s divorce proceedings continue, with her seeking custody of their three minor children and child support. Sterling has expressed his determination to win her back. Additionally, he is now faced with another legal battle as the victims involved in the crash have filed a lawsuit, accusing him of negligent and reckless driving. On his part, Sterling’s lawyer claims that there was no smell of alcohol in the medical report and asserts that the two nurses who examined him would have included it if they had detected it.

As the developments unfold, it remains to be seen how Sterling’s legal troubles will impact his personal and professional reputation. Stay tuned for the latest updates on this ongoing case.
