Irony Alert - Former Head of MADD Arrested For. . . Wait For it. DUI


Before anyone starts typing an e-mail with the subject line "you insensitive jerk"  - please note that I am not making light of drunk driving or drunk drivers, merely noting the irony of this story.


MARION COUNTY, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35) - A woman who was the former president of the Mothers Against Drunk Driving chapter in Gainesville has been arrested for drunk driving.

Debra Oberlin, 48, was arrested around 1:00 a.m. February 18 after police say the car she was driving was swerving on Northwest 39th Street. According to the arrest report she was given two breathalyzer tests and measured .234 and .239. The limit in Florida is .08.

The good news in all of this, Ms. Oberlin's arrest happened before the car she was driving crashed into anyone or anything.  Nobody was injured.  Hopefully she will get the help she needs.
