I'm all for giving someone a second chance, but 11 chances? Everyone makes a mistake once in their life, but the fact that she keeps doing it makes me sick to my stomach. I have some friends who nearly lost their life due to the stupidity of a drunk driver, I have very little sympathy for people who make such stupid decisions.Despite a series of arrests for drunken driving and drivers' license suspensions over the past 20 years, Janet Landrum keeps getting behind the wheel.
Janet Landrum listed an Ellenton address, but the owners say she never lived there.
Less than two weeks before she was nabbed by a Manatee County deputy Saturday for her 11th DUI arrest, Landrum was pulled over, accused of driving 92 mph on Interstate 75, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.
The trooper who stopped her just south of University Parkway at about 10:15 a.m. Aug. 11 charged Landrum with driving with a revoked license, Sarasota court records show.
Landrum, 41, was released, and was driving again at 2:20 a.m. Saturday on Cortez Road in Manatee County when she was stopped for weaving, braking needlessly and rapidly changing lanes, authorities say.
A deputy arrested her on a charge of drunken driving. That was then believed to be her 10th arrest on the charge.
But that total did not include an 11th DUI arrest that happened in St. Johns County in October 2002 that was later reduced to a reckless driving charge. <snip>
