Supermodel Stephanie Seymour, who is already accused of driving under the influence in a Greenwich, Connecticut, crash last month, is facing separate charges for a second crash on the same night.

According to People magazine, state police filed charges against Seymour after she allegedly backed up her black Land Rover into another vehicle at a stop sign on Jan. 15.

Subsequently, police connected Seymour's SUV to damaged utility pole at a second site. Police announced on Monday that she was being charged with leaving the scene of the incident.

When arrested on Jan. 15, Seymour's eyes were reportedly bloodshot, she was "unsteady on her feet" and her breath smelled like alcohol. Refusing a field sobriety test, the 47-year-old former supermodel was taken into custody.

Damage was noted on the front of Seymour's Land Rover from a prior crash, according to Greenwich police and an hour later the utility pole was found with extensive damage near her home in Stamford.

The investigation revealed that a black Land Rover was involved in the incident with the pole near Seymour's home and damage was consistent with the damage to Seymour's car, according to a news release from Bridgeport police.

Seymour is scheduled to appear in Stamford Superior Court on Feb. 2 on the state police charges and on Feb. 7 for the charges Greenwich Police filed.

According to CBS News, Seymour asked to go to a rehabilitation center after being arrested for two drunk driving incidents last month during a court appearance on Tuesday.

Seymour is scheduled to appear in court on Feb. 7 to answer to the charges against her, which include evading responsibility and failure to drive in a proper lane.
