Saint Petersburg, Florida
From the Tampa Bay Times, what NOT to do when you have been drinking and driving…
Last Tuesday, a 57-year-old local Saint Petersburg woman was arrested for a DUI. The police first detected she may have been intoxicated when she crashed into a marked patrol car!
A SPPD officer was sitting in his cruiser on central and 31st street with his lights on. Around 8:35 p.m., the woman rear-ended the patrol car with enough force that the officer had to go to Bayfront Health nearby to get checked out. Both the officer and the suspect were later released from the hospital.
At the scene of the crash, the suspect showed several signs of impairment and after a DUI investigation, she was arrested and later bonded out.
While the suspect IS innocent until proven guilty, a search of her public records show several prior drinking related charges including prior traffic infractions, a prior DUI and several counts of battery on a law enforcement officer.
