In a twist of irony, CBS reports, a former president of the now-defunct Gainesville chapter of Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) was arrested in Gainesville, Fla. for drunk driving. Debra Oberlin was pulled over on February 18 at 1:10 a.m. after an officer noticed Oberlin "driving erratically, swerving and crossing lanes."
The arrest report states that Oberlin, 48, registered a .234 and .239 on breath alcohol tests, levels nearly three times higher than those legally allowed by Florida. The MADD chapter Oberlin headed, says The Gainesville Sun, was finally closed in 1996 due to lack of funding.
