Married At First Sight's most controversial bride Ines Basic has been sentenced to 70 hours community service and been told to "get some perspective on life" after she admitted to drink driving on Christmas Day last year.
Ines, who was originally matched with Bronson on the Channel Nine reality show but had an "affair" with Sam, was accused of ramming her sister's car as it was parked in the driveway, while she was drunk on vodka and Champagne.
The 29-year-old arrived to Brisbane's Cleveland Magistrates Court in a Mercedes limousine and was flanked by a bodyguard wearing a suit.
The court heard the legal secretary was drinking from 10am at her sister's house in Redland Bay on December 25, when the pair got into a heated argument about her decision to go on Married At First Sight.
At around 7pm, Ines left the house, got into her car and claims she "tapped" her sister's car.
But a police prosecutor told the court Ines was screaming "absolutely disgraceful" obscenities and "carrying on like an absolute idiot".
Police allege that Ines was heard screaming "I'm going to f---ing burn your f---ing house down".
She also screamed and swore at police, and when asked by a female police officer to calm down she yelled "f---ing arrest me then b----".
She also gave a fake name to police, "Vanessa Ines".
The court heard she told police officers, "I would never drink drive but the b*tch pissed me off", referring to her sister.
Ines was charged with mid-range drink driving, driving with undue care and attention, commit public nuisance and contravene a police direction, referring to her giving police a fake name.
She pleaded guilty to all the charges.
Ines' lawyer told the court his client had "issues with her childhood" and aside from two public nuisance charges in 2009 and 2014 respectively, she had a good history with the law.

While Magistrate Deborah Vasta let Ines off with only a fine, no criminal conviction recorded and 70 hours of community service, she blasted Ines in court, saying she had behaved like an "absolute brat" who was living in a "bubble of artificiality".
"I get you might have been drunk but it's still no excuse," Magistrate Vasta said.
She also said Ines needed to "get some perspective on life."
"I think the best way for you to repay your debt to society is rolling up your sleeves, and getting out into the community and amongst reality and the real fabric of society," Magistrate Vasta said.
"Because whatever reality TV show you've been on, it's not reality."
