Whoa! This Chicago DUI attorney can admit she’s as taken aback as many others about the recent arrest of a former MADD chapter president.
A former president of the defunct local chapter of Mothers Against Drunk Driving was arrested recently by the Gainesville Police Department on a DUI charge.
Debra Oberlin, 48, was arrested after she had difficulty on a field sobriety test. She registered a .234 and .239 on breath alcohol tests. Florida's legal limit for driving is .08.
Gainesville's MADD chapter existed for several years in the 1990s before closing in 1996 because of lack of financial support. Oberlin was the chapter president for three years.
The words that come to my mind come from the people:
Oh, the irony!!
The irony is the lady who founded MADD was also arrested and found guilty of drunk driving some years back.
Definition of irony...
