By Larry Kahn, KeysNet.com, Mar 25, 2015 –   A onetime cast member of “The Real Housewives of Miami” television show says an infestation of cockroaches led to her early Sunday arrest in Key Largo for driving with a suspended license with knowledge.

But the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office deputy who arrested her wrote in his report that he and his supervisor gave her fair warning before seizing her license earlier in the morning, telling her not to drive.

“The police down there are overzealous,” Ana Quincoces, 50, of Coral Gables said Monday. She starred in the Bravo cable network’s second season of the show in 2012 and had smaller roles in 2011 and 2013.

“It was an administrative glitch,” she said.

Deputy Bryan Cross wrote in his report that he was doing a security check of the Key Largo Community Park at mile marker 99 of U.S. 1 around 3:40 a.m. when he saw Quincoces drive by the park on Laguna Avenue in her Subaru sport utility vehicle. She was heading toward U.S. 1.
