Sober woman arrested for drunk driving after police officer crashes into her car
According to FOX 6 Now, Tanya Weyker was injured Feb. 20, 2013 when a Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Deputy rolled through a stop sign and crashed into her car. The impact broke her neck in four places. Already she has metal rods in her back after prolonged radiation left her spine curved as a child.
Officers at the scene arrested her for drunk driving, but Weyker said she wasn’t drunk. She was injured too severely to blow in a breath-testing device, but blood tests later revealed she was, in fact, sober. Still, the county didn’t drop the charges.
In an in-depth interview, Weyker explains what she’s been through the last year and what she’s doing to clear her good name. Read more from FOX 6 Now.
