Woman loses driver license for not taking blood-alcohol test
Placeholder Image
A woman who ran underneath a tractor trailer while allegedly driving drunk has lost her license for a year under a new stricter implied consent law, forfeiting her driving privileges even as she waits to go before the grand jury on DUI and reckless endangerment charges.The driver, Tammi Marie Bollenbeck, 28, was bound on charges of DUI and reckless endangerment. Her license was taken for one year for violation of the implied consent law under a new law which requires suspected drunk drivers to either submit to a blood-alcohol test after a wreck or face loss of their license prior to their trial – regardless of guilt or innocence on the DUI charge. This means a person in violation of implied consent would still lose their driver license even if they are later acquitted on the underlying drunk driving charge.
