43-year-old Colleen Loughman was driving under the influence with her toddler in the back seat, when she was stopped by an FHP trooper in Broward Co., Florida.
Before being cuffed, dashcam video obtained by WPLG, shows the former teacher waving at the camera, sort of making light of the whole situations. Apparently, she was thinking she passed the field sobriety tests.
This was no laughing matter though. The woman later told police that she had two beers, three Xanax and one Zoloft, with dinner, before getting behind the wheel of her red Kia Sorento.
Others had been calling 911 Saturday night to report someone driving a red car, along Hollywood Blvd., on its rim.
Troopers later spotted the car parked in the emergency lanes of I-95, near State Road 84. Loughman had the ignition on, and her two year old boy fast asleep in the back seat. According to the FHP report, she look “disheveled” and “smelled of alcohol.”
As the trooper was trying to arrest her, Loughman made a huge fuss. It was clear she had no intention of cooperating. She is heard on the recorded video shouting: “Oh my God, no, no, I just passed all the tests.” She then screams, “I’m going to call CNN.”
According to the Sun-Sentinel, the child was released into his father’s care. Loughman was booked Saturday night and bonded out of jail on Monday.
She was charged with driving under the influence and child abuse without great bodily harm.
