Jodhi Meares drink-driving case: police to drop suspended licence charges, her lawyer tells court
She allegedly recorded a blood alcohol reading of 0.181 in the accident.
Meares did not appear in Waverley Local Court today and was represented by her celebrity lawyer Chris Murphy.
Mr Murphy indicated police would be dropping two charges of driving with a suspended licence that had also been levelled against Ms Meares.
He did not enter a plea on the other charge of drink-driving.
Since her two-year marriage to Mr Packer ended in 2002, Meares has kept her private life out of the spotlight.
She was behind the successful swimwear brand Tigerlily, which she sold to surfwear company Billabong in 2007 for up to $5 million.
Meares has since founded the luxury sportswear brand The Upside which she runs from Surry Hills.
She is due to appear in Waverley Local Court on August 20.

Another example of corrupt cops in action.
One law for 'us' and another for 'them'.
Flaunting in front of the masses.
