What is DUI?
'Driving Under the Influence' is the crime of operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or other drugs. An officer has probable cause for an arrest in the context of a DUI stop if the results of a field sobriety test or a breath test indicate probable intoxication. The same holds true if a blood test reveals an illegal blood alcohol level. Reasonable suspicion differs from probable cause.
This is not the first time she has been arrested. The 43-year-old was also arrested on suspicion of DUI in suburban Atlanta last year.
