Bribing Isn't an Option in Recent Florida DUI Case

In Orlando, a woman with the initials A.A. was recently caught driving 12 miles per hour over the speed limit in a 30 miles per hour zone. She was consequentially pulled over by police officers who captured her speed on their radar gun. However, when they approached her vehicle, the law enforcement recognized that A.A. wasn’t only guilty of speeding; she was driving under the influence as well. In a lot of circumstances, men and women who are driving under the influence will speed because the alcohol dulls their observation.

They fail to check their speedometer or notice the posted speed limits, and instead operate their vehicles however they prefer to at the time. The 21-year-old was pulled over at about 3 a.m. when she was on her way back home from clubbing. However, her largest worry isn’t even her charge for driving under the influence. While inhibited by alcohol, A.A. tried to charm her way out of a charge by offering the officers $3,000. This will land her a felony charge for bribing a police officer. The police reports say that A.A. would not emerge from her vehicle after she was asked six times. Finally, the police reached into her vehicle to take her keys in case she tried to flee the scene.

They had to grab her by the arm and pull her out of the car. She smelled of alcohol and fell on the ground after she was taken out of her car. Eventually, she walked unsteadily towards to police car, and refused to take a breathalyzer test. When she tried to sit, she lost her balance again. The police found a 1.75-liter bottle of tequila in her car, meriting another offense of driving with an open beverage. A.A. was taken to prison and will faces charges for speeding, driving under the influence, violating open container laws, and a felony charge for bribing a police officer among other charges. If you have been suspected of a DUI, we realize that you may not be guilty. Sometimes a faulty breathalyzer is enough to mischarge a person driving while intoxicated. If you believe that you have been unfairly accused, make sure to talk to a Tampa DUI lawyer for more information.
