A 26-year-old Richmond woman kicked off her July Fourth weekend in Rappahannock Regional Jail after making the choice to drive drunk.

On June 30th at approximately 4:37 p.m. Captain L. Peters and Deputy W.A. Bolinsky responded to Warrenton Road near Plantation Drive for a report of a reckless driver. The caller advised a vehicle struck not one, not two, but three vehicles and continued on. Luckily, the suspect vehicle wouldn’t be hard to locate considering it was a bright blue Jeep.

Captain Peters located the suspect vehicle near Commerce Parkway and conducted a traffic stop as Deputy Bolinsky arrived to assist. The driver had glassy, bloodshot eyes and the overwhelming odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from her breath. If those clues weren’t obvious enough, there was also an empty bottle of Patron and a flask in plain view. The driver became hostile towards deputies and yelled at them.

It was discovered the suspect rear-ended victim one in the area of South Gateway Drive. In an attempt to flee, she rear-ended victim two’s vehicle. The pattern continued as she struck victim three’s vehicle. The driver was arrested for driving under the influence, as well as, three counts of hit and run. She was held at Rappahannock Regional Jail until sober.

Drive sober or get pulled over.
