Atlanta News Anchor Amanda Davis Arrested For DUI After Head-On Collision
According to 11Alive
FOX 5 news anchor Amanda Davis was arrested early Sunday for driving under the influence near Piedmont Park.
Atlanta Police Sgt. Gregory Lyon said Davis was arrested at around midnight after an accident on Piedmont Avenue near 14th Street. He said the crash scene suggested Davis was driving northbound in a southbound lane when her green Fiat collided head on with a black Toyota.
“Upon speaking with both drivers, the officer noticed an odor of alcohol emanating from Ms. Davis’ person,” Sgt. Lyon said in a statement. “He asked her if she had been drinking, to which she did respond in the affirmative.”
Lyon said Davis refused to submit to a field sobriety test and the State Administered Chemical Test, but a DUI officer found probable cause to arrest her for impaired driving.
In addition to DUI, Davis was also charged with reckless driving and failure to maintain lane. Her license was confiscated and she was taken to jail, according to Lyon.
Davis was also arrested for driving under the influence, speeding and failing to maintain lane in December 1991.
Amanda has been on-air presenting Atlanta news for the Fox 5 for YEARS. We’re not sure if this latest incident will cause her to lose her job, but it damn sure better convince her to put the bottle of pinot noir down and get a designated driver.
Sloppy azz heffa…
