A 52-year-old woman has been charged with driving under the influence (DUI) after speeding through a school-zone.  In the statement she gave to the police, the woman asserted that she was attempting to get her son to school on time.  The woman was pulled over after clocked by an officer driving 40 m.p.h. in a 25 m.p.h. zone.

After the officer flicked on the blue-lights signaling the woman to pull over, she led them down several streets before finally putting her vehicle to a stop.  Police say she failed several sobriety tests, eventually refusing to take a breath-test.  She reported to the officers that she drank too much the night before and had no food in her stomach that morning.  Beer cans and mouthwash were found in the minivan.

The woman was charged with failure to stop for a blue light, child endangerment, and driving under the influence.  Therefore, the moral of the story is do not drive the morning after a long drinking night.  However, if you or a loved one do get charged with DUI or Felony DUI, call the law offices of Reeves, Aiken & Hightower, LLP at 803-548-4444, or toll-free at 877-374-5999.
