Grandma’s Drunk Again

Patricia Ebel, 50, was arrested for violating the terms of the probation she’d received after a DUI. Ebel allegedly had a blood alcohol content of more than double the legal limit when her probation officer tested her: she was required to remain alcohol-free for a year. The DUI happened when Ebel was driving her 10-year-old grandson home from a pool party. Ebel crashed into another car and a responding deputy smelled alcohol. She performed (and failed) field sobriety tests while wearing a bikini. (MS/Naples News-Press, WINK Ft. Myers) ...This time there was no bikini and no grandson, so that’s progress, right?
