The L.A. Times is reporting that an Orange County sheriff’s official has been charged with two counts of DUI after causing a car accident in Irvine in April.
Irvine police arrested Lt. Erin Lorraine Guidice, after she crashed into the back of another car stopped at a red light on Jamboree Road in Irvine.
At time, she was driving an unmarked Orange County Sheriff’s Department vehicle and when police arrived at the scene, Guidice had slurred speech, bloodshot and watery eyes and had trouble keeping her balance during a sobriety test. She had a blood alcohol level of 0.14%, or nearly twice the legal limit, according to authorities.
If convicted, she faces a maximum sentence of six months in jail.
