MAITLAND, Fla. — A 32-year-old woman was arrested Saturday on DUI charges after she drove the wrong way on Interstate 4 in Maitland and crashed into a barrier, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.
FHP said in an arrest report that it received about 13 calls to 911 about the driver, who was going west on I-4 East.
Troopers said when they approached the crashed car, Angela Sammons got out of the sedan without shoes, and that when a trooper handed Sammons her shoes she put them on the wrong feet.
The FHP report stated Sammons was stumbling and staggering on her feet, and did not know where she was or where she was driving to.
Sammons was placed in the back of a patrol car, where she fell asleep, troopers said.
FHP said when a trooper woke Sammons up and asked her if she was OK, she slurred her words and said she was tired and wanted to go home.
Troopers said Sammons refused a field sobriety and Breathalyzer tests.
Channel 9 found out that Sammons was an officer for the Division of Alcoholic Beverages and Tobacco.
The state said Sammons voluntarily left her position last year.
Troopers said they found multiple Florida driver’s licenses in her purse, and loaded guns and handcuffs in her car.
Sammons was booked into the Orange County Jail on charges of driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, involving a vehicle crash, FHP said.
Her bail was set at $500.
