    A South Florida social media model dubbed the "Cuban Kim Kardashian" found herself posing for a mug shot Sunday after police say she fled from officers while driving drunk after leaving a popular Miami nightclub.

    Officers arrested 25-year-old Katherine Ferreiro and charged her with several counts, including driving under the influence and fleeing police.

    According to the arrest report, police attempted to pull over Ferreiro just after 8:30 a.m. Sunday after seeing the Range Rover she was driving run a stop sign coming out of Club Eleven on North Miami Avenue and Northeast 11th Street.

    An officer came up to her vehicle, but Ferreiro allegedly kept driving before being pulled over a second time. Police later say they smelled alcohol coming from her breath and asked her to perform a field sobriety test, which she failed.
