Former President Of MADD Arrested On DUI Charge

February 25th, 2011

Well this is certainly embarrassing. And really, really sad. Debra Oberlin used to fight to keep drunk drivers off the road, but now she herself is facing a DUI charge. The Gainesville area Realtor was recently arrested after failing a field sobriety test and registering a breath alcohol level three times that of the legal limit. Oops.

Writing or the Gainesville Sun, Cindy Swirko reports:

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.
