...DUI.


Oh my.


A former president of the defunct local chapter of Mothers Against Drunk Driving was arrested recently by the Gainesville Police Department on a DUI charge.


Debra Oberlin, 48, was arrested after she had difficulty on a field sobriety test. She registered a .234 and .239 on breath alcohol tests. Florida's legal limit for driving is .08.

Oberlin, a Realtor, had no comment when contacted Thursday by The Sun.

On Feb. 18 at 1:10 a.m., an officer spotted Oberlin driving erratically on Northwest 19th Street, swerving and crossing lanes, an arrest report states. Oberlin was pulled over in the 3600 block of Northwest 39th Avenue.

The officer wrote that Oberlin smelled of alcohol and had watery, bloodshot and dilated eyes. The report states that Oberlin told the officer she had four beers.

Gainesville's MADD chapter existed for several years in the 1990s before closing in 1996 because of lack of financial support. Oberlin was the chapter president for three years.

I'm sure she'll be fine going through the sentencing, probation, and various fines and classes that her group helped to impose on everyone. :)

We had a convicted armed robber get off with six months probation not long ago, it didn't cost him a dime, public defender we payed for it.

That sounds about right. Car insurance rates will double or triple for 3 or more years.

Even if this is her first offense, I hope the judge has a sense of humor and sends her to AA meetings. Her community service should be a fun event also.

They didn't have SADD at my high school when I was there, but they did when my sister was still there. She said that all the members were kids who drank a lot at parties.
