Police Officials arrested a 61- year-old women from Ocala for a DUI. The vehicle she was driving plowed into the back of another vehicle that had stopped at a stop light.
According to Marion County Jail, Susan Moon’s breath samples were .23 and .220, nearly three time more than the state’s legal limit of .08.
Police officials said a Chevy sport utility vehicle was traveling eastbound along Northeast 14th street when it stopped at the stop light. Police said when the light changed, the SUV driver drove off, and Moon’s Kia, which was behind the Chevy, slammed into the back of the SUV. Only the Chevy driver had minor injuries, according to police.
The crash took place in the 2000 block of Northeast 14th Street.
Officials arrived and noticed Moon’s breath smelled like alcohol and she had to balance herself by holding onto a tree near by as medical personnel were called to the scene.
Moon told officers she was driving her dog to the dog clinic. Officials did not find a dog, but they did find several beer cans in the vehicle. She had said she only had two beers earlier that day.
She was unable to perform field sobriety exercises because she kept falling.
Moon, who was booked into jail Friday, was released Saturday on her own recognizance. She is scheduled to be in court December 17th.
