DUI, other charges brought against Florida woman after accidents

One woman in Florida is currently facing multiple criminal allegations after a purported event that recently took place. Apparently, the woman is suspected of DUI after reportedly hitting multiple vehicles while traveling on Interstate 4. Her vehicle came to a stop under an overpass after apparently breaking down for undisclosed reasons.

After stopping, the woman allegedly began acting in an erratic manner. She also purportedly had a 2-year-old child with her, who she reportedly got out of the vehicle and let roam near moving traffic. Authorities had been informed of the woman's reckless driving behaviors and eventually located the woman. She allegedly began resisting officers when they attempted to take her into custody. She chose to remain silent after the arrest.

It was unclear to whom the child may have belonged, but he was taken into the custody of a child protection officer. The woman was taken to a county jail on charges of DUI, leaving the scene of an accident, child endangerment and other allegations. It was unclear whether any bail or bond amount had been set in relation to her arrest.

The charges brought against this woman could cause her a great deal of confusion and stress. DUI allegations alone can be tricky to handle, and the other allegations may only make her situation more challenging to face. However, she does have legal options for creating a criminal defense against any and all charges. Information on her defense options may help her determine what strategies she may feel most comfortable utilizing as her case moves through the Florida criminal justice system.
