Woman arrested for her 17th DUI!!

17th time is not the charm for a woman as she picked up yet another DUI, what will happen to her?

In Shelbyville, Tennessee, a woman has been arrested for her 17th DUI and her 16th driving while license  suspended!

Dorothy Hanson began her DUI marathon in 1985 and it has only escalated.  She has picked up six more in the last 10 years!

In the latest crime, she crashed head on into another woman, causing severe facial fractures.  The victim, Emily Boyt, is furious and spoke out.  “it makes me feel better knowing it was me [instead of someone else].  It’s upsetting.  Just hearing she was drunk actually made me cry, because I don’t know how anyone could be that selfish to get behind the wheel and put somebody’s life in jeopardy”.

Police claim the suspect had open liquor and beer bottles in the car and she was so dehydrated from drinking that paramedics were unable to draw blood from her!

Local law enforcement chipped in on the outrage. “She’s a convicted habitual offender and we need those types of people off the road”, a spokesman said.  “It could be a terrible accident sometime in the future if this continues on”.

Dorothy was back at work and would not comment but her father told a local newsman that his daughter was a good person who needs help with her drinking.
