Women Arrested For DUI While Celebrating End Of Previous DUI, 2013 Darwin Award Nominee A Natural

May 7, 2013

A west suburban woman arrested for driving under the influence early Friday in Riverside — whose blood alcohol level was nearly twice the legal limit when tested at the police station — told police that she had been drinking to celebrate the fact that she would be getting her driver’s license back from a previous DUI arrest, police said. Ms. James purposely drove a car that she did not own to avoid the ignition lock device and was driving back from a Forest Park bar where she was celebrating that fact that she would finally have her driving privileges back after her 2012 conviction for DUI. The Darwin Award Selection Committee stated “Ms James looks like a natural”.
