Sumter County, FL (January 8, 2019) – A woman was arrested in Sumter County after she cut off a deputy in a roundabout after she had been drinking throughout the day at a bar.
66-year-old Sue Anne Fahy was arrested after she had been drinking bottomless mimosas and Vodka around 2 p.m. on Sunday and got behind the wheel of a car. She was eventually pulled over at the roundabout at Morse Boulevard and Stillwater Trail when she suddenly made an improper lane change in front of an officer.
The officer claimed that she cut him off and struck the curb when she was trying to leave the roundabout. Fahy was pulled over and denied that she had been drinking. However, she indicated that she was coming from the area of the bar. Fahy became irritated when she was trying to complete field sobriety tests and failed.
The deputy took inventory of her vehicle and found the receipts for drinks at the bar. Fahy was then arrested on a charge of driving under the influence. She has since been booked and released.
