Alan Carr's husband Paul Drayton has been accused of reversing into a police car while over the drink-drive limit, a court heard.
Drayton was allegedly four times over the drink-drive limit and nearly hit a mum with a pram during the incident, a court was told.
The 50-year-old was driving his Mitsubishi 4×4 when the accident is claimed to have taken place.
Paul was stopped 15 minutes later just three miles from his £2.7 million home which he shares with comedian Alan, 45.
He was seen "swerving from one side of the road to the other."
After being pulled over, he was accused of reversing into a police vehicle, Crawley Magistrates' Court heard.
Paul was charged last month with driving with 153mcg of alcohol in 100ml of breath against a legal limit of 35mcg at Broadbridge Heath in Horsham, West Sussex.
Paul has denied the allegations, with prosecutor David Holman saying Drayton claims he was not driving during the close miss.
He has also claimed the breathalyser machine was not working properly when he was tested.
Mr Holman said: “The officer says there was a strong smell of intoxicating liquor. The driver was then unsteady on his feet and lacked co-ordination.
"His speech was slurred and his eyes were glazed.”
The case was adjourned until another hearing set at Brighton magistrates court on November 23.
