Description

GROVELAND, Fla. (TND) — Following too closely led to one car rear-ending another, and a DUI charge in this case, and it wasn't the driver's first arrest, or even her first DUI.

Police in Florida said last Wednesday evening, an officer “noticed two vehicles parked in the median” and determined the “Subaru was following too closely and impacted the Dodge’s rear bumper with its front bumper,” the arrest report said.

Then, the officer told the Subaru’s driver, Jessica Maria Rivera, he finished the crash investigation and would “be conducting a DUI investigation.”

According to the arrest report, “I noticed Ms. Rivera had bloodshot, glassy eyes, and slurred her speech while speaking with me.
“Ms. Rivera also stated that she had approximately two Bud Light draft beers approximately three hours prior to the crash.”

Then, “While speaking with Ms. Rivera and explaining the [sobriety] exercises, I noticed Ms. Rivera had an odor of an alcoholic beverage emanating from her breath as she spoke.”

She ended up arrested for DUI with property damage and was taken to jail, where she reportedly refused a breath test.

She got a ticket for careless driving and the arrest report said she had a previous DUI conviction.

The National Desk found Rivera was charged with DUI and possession of a small amount of cannabis on Jan. 4, 2013, and she pleaded no contest to both on April 16.

Then, in 2017, she pleaded guilty to possession of clonazepam and no contest to battery.

In 2018, she pleaded no contest to reckless driving with alcohol.

In 2019, she was charged with 23 counts of fraudulent use of personal identification information, three counts of grand theft between $750 and $20,000, and one count of petit theft between $100 and $750.

Rivera, 32, also pleaded guilty to knowingly driving with a suspended license on Nov. 28, just four months before her latest arrest.
