Stafford, VA. Deputies with the Stafford County Sheriff’s Office arrested a suspect on Friday night for driving under the influence and destruction of property after she drove through a privacy fence and into a pool located in the backyard of a residence in north Stafford.

On August 17, 2018, at approximately 11:00 p.m., Deputy Daniel Reed responded to reports that a single vehicle had driven into a pool in the backyard of a residence in the Embrey Mill neighborhood. Upon arrival, the deputy observed the female suspect soaking wet and wrapped in a towel. He also detected the odor of an alcoholic beverage emanating from her person and saw that she had bloodshot, glassy eyes.

The suspect was identified as Lisa Marie Leone, 38, of Stafford. Leone told deputies that she was coming from Embrey Mill Café when an animal jumped in front of her car. She swerved to avoid hitting the animal, causing her to drive through the fence and into the pool.

Leone is charged with driving under the influence (second offense in 10 years), refusal to provide a breath sample, destruction of property, and a traffic lane violation. She was granted an unsecured bond and held until sober at the Rappahannock Regional Jail.
