A 23-year-old medical receptionist was placed on probation for two and a half years after she was found guilty of driving to endanger and of six counts of assault by means of a dangerous weapon. Her drunken driving charge was continued without finding for two years probation. She must also participate in a first-offenders alcohol driver education program, and was ordered to refrain from drinking alcohol, said a New York Criminal Lawyer.
Leading up to her arrest, the 23-year-old left a Providence RI nightclub after having an argument with someone. She then drove drunk from Providence to Massachusetts on Interstate 95, and had a collision with a car containing six occupants on I-495. She also nearly forced a state trooper off the road, states a New York City Criminal Lawyer.
The other driver at the Providence nightclub supposedly sparked the incident, leading to the chase. However, the medical receptionist accepted responsibility for her actions. The accident took place around 3 a.m. when she repeatedly crashed into the rear of the victim’s car as it drove down the highway. A State Trooper had to take evasive action to avoid a collision as he pursued them down I-495.
She had only had one other minor brush with the law prior to her July 25th arrest. The 23-year-old now suffers from nightmares and a knee injury after the accident. Prosecutors stated that she deserved the guilty ruling because she was acting “out of control” and they thought she should be reprimanded.
