Former MADD Head Charged With Drunk Driving

Feb 25, 2011 – 12:58 PM

Do as I say, not as I DUI.

Police arrested the former president of a Gainesville, Fla., chapter of Mothers Against Drunk Driving on Feb. 18, charging her with driving under the influence.

Officers pulled over Debra Oberlin, 48, at around 1:10 a.m. after seeing her vehicle veer across lanes of traffic, according to The Gainesville Sun.

Incident reports indicate the suspect — who headed a now-defunct chapter of the anti-drunken-driving group for three years in the 1990s — had bloodshot and dilated eyes and smelled of alcohol.

After struggling on a field sobriety test, Breathalyzer tests recorded Oberlin’s blood alcohol level as .234 and .239 — nearly three times the state’s legal limit of .08.

The former MADD leader reportedly told officers she drank four beers before getting behind the wheel.
