A woman from Tampa was arrested and charged with a DUI on the day before Christmas Eve in Hillsborough County. Reports from the Florida Highway Patrol state that the drunk driver accident began shortly after 2:30 in the morning, as a couple were traveling within a 2009 Kia Spectra down an inside southern lane of North Florida Avenue. The report did not state where the two individuals were coming from, but based on the breathalyzer results it seems safe to say that wherever it was had plenty of alcohol to offer.
