29-year-old Destiny Fleming was involved in a car accident at The Batter’s Box Bar on November 8th. Officers spoke with Erica Scott, a witness to the incident, as they arrived, who advised them that she had seen Fleming drinking in the bar before leaving and attempting to open the door of a car that looked like hers but was not. Scott stated that Fleming then got into her car, began to drive, and backed into a parked truck. Thomas Ruggio, another witness, told officers that Fleming attempted to get in his vehicle after stumbling out of the bar. Deputies spoke with Fleming, who said to them that she went into The Batter’s Box after she got off work and had “one drink.” Officers observed her to be visibly intoxicated as she insisted that she only got into her car to park in a different spot so her friend could come pick her up. Fleming refused to take sobriety tests or give a breath sample and was charged with driving under the influence and implied consent.
