Nadia Bartel has a tense phone call as she prepares to face court over alleged driving offences

She’s set to face court in March over alleged driving offences that could land her in jail or with a large fine.

And on Thursday, Nadia Bartel, 36, appeared to be having a somewhat tense phone conversation as she stepped out in Melbourne.

The former WAG was spotted roaming the street and growing increasingly agitated throughout the conversation.

Is everything okay? Nadia Bartel had a tense phone call while out in Melbourne on Thursday… as she prepares to face court over alleged driving offences that could see her jailed

The mother-of-two held her phone as she waited outside a local coffee shop.

Nadia was dressed in tiny white shorts, a grey singlet and a pair of black sandals.

She left her long blonde locks out and kept a low profile with dark sunglasses as she roamed the street.

After collecting her order, Nadia held the coffees in one hand while speaking on the phone and walking to her car.

Nadia’s outing coincided with media outlets reporting she had been charged with allegedly driving while her licence was suspended and failing to update her address.

She was intercepted by Prahran Highway Patrol officers on Dandenong Road in the Melbourne suburb of Windsor at about 12.30pm on August 25, 2021.

This was just a week before she was filmed snorting white powder from a Kmart plate at an illegal party during Melbourne’s lockdown.

She will appear at Melbourne Magistrates’ Court on March 24 and could face up to four months’ jail or a fine of up to $4,500 for a first offence.

Nadia said she ‘not aware’ her driving licence had been suspended.

‘In August I was pulled over by the police who advised me that I was driving on a suspended licence,’ she told the Herald Sun on Tuesday.

She explained the suspension was because she’d exceeded her demerit point balance.

‘I was not aware of the suspension as communication had been sent to my previous residential address which I didn’t receive,’ she added.

‘I would never have driven had I been aware of the suspension and my residential details have now been updated.’

It comes after the now-infamous video of Nadia breaching Covid restrictions was posted to social media by her friend Ellie Pearson during Victoria’s sixth Covid-19 lockdown.

In the video, recorded on September 1, Nadia was surrounded by other women who laughed as she leaned over a cheap plate and snorted a line of white powder.

Nadia, Ellie and two other women were fined $5,452 each for breaching lockdown rules.

After the incident was widely reported, Nadia lost well-paid sponsorship deals.

At the time, she said she was ’embarrassed and remorseful’.

‘I have let you all down by my actions,’ she said. ‘I take full responsibility and I am committed to taking all necessary steps to ensure I make better choices in future.’

Nadia did not face criminal charges over the white-powder incident.
