As reported, the police officers in Fort Pierce, Florida were alerted upon seeing a silver Toyota driving 100 mph in a 30 mph zone while blowing her horn for about ten seconds and having her hand hanging out of the vehicle last Tuesday on US 1.
Police officer claimed that when they tried to stop the female driver, she further increased her speed and nearly hit a curb. Subsequently, the vehicle drifted across two southbound lanes before it came to a stop.
Accordingly, as the cops pulled the 41-year-old driver, Melissa Miller, and confronted her about her strange driving behavior, she simply replied that it was all because she was letting the spirit of the Lord come into her. Also, she further said that the Lord was telling her to blow her horn aloud.
Apparently, the apprehending officer did not believe in miracles; therefore, she was arrested for reckless driving and was booked in St. Lucie County Jail under a $375.00 bail.
In addition, Miller was also charged with violating her existing probation resulting from her previous hit-and-run accident.
Obviously, such kind of excuses cannot save anyone from being penalized after violating traffic laws, according to several personal injury lawyers. Apparently, they have heard many similar fabricated stories from apprehended drivers in their years of experience in the industry, they added.
