According to KWTX Texas, a Texas jury convicted a 23-year-old woman of intoxication assault of a police officer after crashing head-on into a police car in College Station, Texas, in January 2010. She was driving 80 miles per hour in a 30 miles per hour zone when she slammed into the police car. The police officer was permanently disabled after the crash and is will never be able to serve as a police officer again.Â Immediately after the crash, police noticed the driver smelled of alcohol, had bloodshot eyes, and slurred her speech.Â She admitted to consuming seven drinks before driving, and her blood alcohol content was twice the legal limit.
