A Villager will lose her driver’s license following her arrest on a driving below the affect cost after Lake Sumter Touchdown.

Christine Brunette, 57, who lives at 819 Camino Del Rey Drive, pleaded no contest on Aug. 29 in Sumter County Courtroom to a DUI cost. She’s going to lose her driver’s license for six months, has been positioned on probation for one 12 months and has been ordered to carry out 50 hours of neighborhood service.

Her automobile was noticed within the wee hours June 3 because it was limping alongside on a flat tire at Canal Avenue off of Lakeshore Drive, in response to an arrest report from the Sumter County Sheriff’s Workplace. Brunette was alone within the automotive and it appeared she was below the affect. She denied consuming alcohol however stated she had taken Gabapentin, an anti-convulsive medicine. Brunette agreed to participate in area sobriety workout routines, however the deputy opted to halt the workout routines out of concern for Brunette’s security, as a result of her poor efficiency. She had an “unsteady gate” and was “swaying.” She refused to offer a breath pattern and stated she wished a lawyer.
