Villager Loses License But Keeps Driving Anyway

Back in April of 2023, a Villager was arrested on DUI charges after her BMW SUV veered off the road and into a golf cart retailer. There were many golf carts in front of the retailer on display, and the drunk driver apparently struck three of the golf carts. Police arrived and immediately deduced that the woman had been drinking. She then refused to provide a breath sample, and so she lost her license. In addition, she was placed on probation for one year.

However, it seems as though the woman decided to continue driving anyway. This led to a second arrest for speeding. Apparently, she drove to her probation appointment because she believed she had been granted an exception. However, no such exception was made.
