Cop rolls through stop sign hitting girls car which breaks her neck, and then arrests her for DUI because she couldn't do field sobriety tests. She was sober.


A 25-year-old woman, with nothing so much as a speeding ticket blemishing her record, is arrested for drunk driving after an officer rolls through a stop sign and hits her car.

The woman was injured so seriously in the accident, she couldn’t blow into a breath-testing device or perform field sobriety tests. But she was arrested for drunk driving anyway, and she claims those charges were hung over her head by the arresting agency for nearly a year after blood tests proved she was sober.
In February 2013, Milwaukee County Deputy Joseph Quiles was working the night shift at the airport. He pulled out onto a street, and t-boned a passing car, sending it spinning into a tree.

Tanya Weyker was behind the wheel of that car, and her neck was broken in four places because of that accident. As emergency crews tended to her neck injuries, officers at the scene started asking her questions.
“One asked if I had anything to drink that night,” Weyker told WITI, “And I told them a few sips from a friend’s drink.”
