Tampa Woman Arrested for DUI After Rear-Ending Patrol Car

A car accident on the Interstate 275 turned into a DUI arrest on Friday, the 6th of September. An unmarked Florida Highway Patrol car was parked in the travel lane of an exit ramp. The Tampa trooper's emergency lights were on, and the car was blocking off the exit to control traffic while road construction was underway. Before the clock hit 3:00 am, the trooper's car was struck from behind by another car. The other driver, a 29-year-old woman, had not stopped in time. The trooper was taken to Tampa General Hospital, having sustained minor injuries. The driver in the other car was uninjured, but she was taken to Hillsborough County Jail and charged with driving under the influence. The exit ramp was not reopened until 4:30 am, which was after the investigation concluded.

Any DUI charge is a very serious matter; it has the potential to upend one's life. This is especially true if anyone faces a felony DUI charge. Someone can be hit with this charge after an accident has left someone seriously injured, and then evidence further suggests that the driver is under the influence. This might be ascertained by taking chemical tests, such as a blood test that yields a blood alcohol content reading of 0.08 percent or more. The charge could be given after a failed field sobriety test. Yet breath and blood tests and well as field sobriety has been proven to be mistaken before. For whatever reason the charges were filed, the penalties faced can be severe. That person could be looking at a prison sentence of five years as well as a fine of up to $5,000. Then there would be a life as a convicted felon.
