Strange DUI Arrests

| Jan 10, 2014 | Firm News

Zombie-eyed woman among most bizarre DUI cases last year

Some DUI arrests in Florida last year were weirder than others

Gagnier’s Nov. 1 traffic stop, captured on just-released dashcam video, shows the woman all dolled up as an undead piggy. She wore a flesh-toned leotard with a butcher-poster-inspired design: Dashes carved up her body into such pig parts as flank, ribs, belly and shoulder.

Gagnier’s mug shot went viral. She is now working to complete a pretrial-diversion program in her case – one among thousands of DUI arrests in Florida last year. Some were more bizarre than others.

‘Someone from Colombia’

Yamil Arcadio Colon-Sanchez threatened to have “someone from Colombia” come to Orlando to kill the police officer who arrested him on DUI charges in March, a report said. Charges of threatening a public servant were tacked on the night of Colon-Sanchez’s arrest but later dropped. Colon-Sanchez pleaded no contest to DUI. He was sentenced to nearly a year of probation after spending 13 days in jail.

Stuntman causes $10K in damage after crash

Grady Allen Bishop, a professional stuntman from Winter Springs, was arrested in February after police said he smashed his white pickup into several parked cars, then a parking meter, then a lamppost after a drunken night in downtown Orlando. Bishop, owner of Extreme Stunt and Driving Team in Seminole County, caused $10,000 in damage.

Bishop was wearing white hot pants and a midriff tank top with “Jamaica” written on it. His blood-alcohol content was 0.191, more than double the limit. He pleaded no contest to a lesser charge: reckless driving. He spent five days in jail and was sentenced to a year of probation.

Drunken driver hits Shellie Zimmerman’s car

George Zimmerman’s estranged wife, Shellie, made headlines after Nicholas Austin of Orlando ran a red light and crashed into her car near Aloma Avenue and Phelps Avenue on Dec. 27, police said. The dishwasher wobbled through a sobriety test but refused a breath test. His license was suspended, and he was released on $1,000 bail.

Woman’s blood-alcohol content even stunned deputies

Elin Marie Peterson had a potentially fatal blood-alcohol content of 0.41 in September in Marion County. That’s five times Florida’s limit. She told a deputy she consumed four cans of 8 percent-alcohol beer before she drove her car off East State Road 40 into some bushes.
