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
“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.”
