(CNN)Model Stephanie Seymour was arrested on DUI charges Friday evening by Connecticut State Police in Greenwich, according to a police report.

Officers were called to a highway exit ramp after the 47-year-old model backed her black Land Rover into a Mercedes at a stop sign, the report said.
The responding officer described smelling a "strong odor" of alcohol coming from Seymour's mouth as she answered questions.
    "After six or seven requests for her license, registration and insurance, she finally was able to fumble through her purse, as she handed over her Connecticut driver's license, along with a credit card," the officer wrote in the report.
    The officer noticed that Seymour had bloodshot eyes and asked her to exit the vehicle to perform field sobriety tests, adding that she was "unsteady on her feet" and "her breath smelled of an alcoholic beverage," the report said.
    Seymour refused all tests and was arrested, the report said. She was charged with "driving under the influence" and "unsafe backing."
    She was released on a $500 bond and is scheduled to appear in Stamford Superior Court in early February.
    CNN's calls to Seymour were unanswered Monday. Information for her lawyer was not immediately available.
