Florida Mom Arrested for Fourth DUI While Picking Up Child From School

Lake Mary, Florida law enforcement arrested a 43-year-old woman for DUI while she stood in the pick up line at a Florida Elementary School. Unfortunately, this was not the first time this woman had been arrested for DUI, as it has been reported that the defendant has three prior DUI arrests.

The report went on to detail that police were initially called because the woman crashed into a lead vehicle in the pick up line at the school. The police indicated that roadside field sobriety exercises were given and that she performed “miserably”. One eyewitness reported that the woman fell forward while attempting to walk a straight line heel-to-toe.

In Florida, if her three previous DUI arrest all resulted into convictions, she will likely be charged with a third degree Felony DUI. Unlike her previous misdemeanor DUIs, this Felony DUI can ultimately land her in up to five years state prison and permanently revoke her driver’s license.
