Survivor winner Jenna Morasca has been arrested. Morasco, 37, who is most famous for winning Survivor: The Amazon in 2003, was found unconscious in her SUV in Washington, Pennsylvania, on January 25, TMZ is reporting.

Upon arrival, cops determined she was under the influence, finding her Chevrolet Trax (with custom license plates reading “AMAZON”) still running. They administered Narcan but she woke up on the way to the hospital. When an officer tried to subdue her, the reality star allegedly bit her on the forearm.

There were also “several syringes in a large Ziploc bag in Morasca’s purse,” TMZ reports. She was arrested for possession of narcotics paraphernalia and DUI and will be charged with assaulting a police officer.

Following her win on the 2003 season of Survivor, making her the youngest female winner in the show’s history, Morasca went on to compete on 2004’s Survivor: All Stars, The Amazing Race 19 and Fear Factor. She’s also a model who landed a spread in Playboy in 2003 with fellow Survivor contestant Heidi Strobel. Following her win, she began dating Survivor: Africa winner Ethan John. The couple competed together on The Amazing Race but split in 2013 after 10 years together.
