Citrus County Woman Facing DUI, Child Neglect Charges After Series of Wrecks on I-4

accident-641456_640.jpgTroopers of the Florida Highway Patrol say a mother was intoxicated when she struck a series of cars on I-4 last Tuesday while her two-year-old son was a passenger.

Beverly Hills, Florida resident Brianna Dee Knox was piloting her 2001 Honda down the interstate in the late afternoon of January 9 when troopers allege her of wrecking into four different cars before her own finally broke down as a result of the impacts.

According to troopers, the 28-year-old Knox subsequently left her car and acted in an odd fashion. She allegedly removed her son from the vehicle and allowed him to wander in the roadway while she answered nature's call on the side of the road.

Upon their arrival, troopers say Knox resisted their attempts at taking her into custody, allegedly kicking an officer and falling to the ground before they were able to handcuff her. She declined to submit to a breath test for blood-alcohol content as well. While Knox was arrested, her son was placed in the care of the state child protection service. The Florida Department of Children and Families says that this is the first contact they've had with Knox or her son.

Knox was booked into the Hillsborough County Jail later that evening. She is being held in lieu of a $15,000 bail on two charges of battery on a law enforcement officer, one charge of driving under the influence, one charge of resisting an officer with violence, one charge of disobeying a police officer, two counts of child neglect, four counts of DUI with property damage, and one charge of leaving the scene of an accident with injury.
