INGLEWOOD, CA—If the Guinness Book of World Records empire tracked Driving Under the Influence (DUI) records, this might have been one for the books.
Taisha Laangel Busby, 37, was arrested by Inglewood police officers on Saturday, February 14—Valentine’s Day. She was picked up at approximately 2:06 a.m. at the intersection of West Manchester and Inglewood Avenues. Police charged her with four new violations and two outstanding warrants, four of which were DUI-related.
The new charges were DUI alcohol/drugs (23152(A)VC), DUI: driving under the influence of alcohol while on probation for a prior DUI (23154(A)VC), DUI alcohol/0.08 percent (23152(B)VC) and driving with a suspended license owing to a prior DUI (14601.2AVC).
The two warrants were from a DUI alcohol/0.08 percent (23152(B)VC) from Hawthorne PD and a failure to appear after promising to do so (40508(A)VC) from Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD).
Total bail was set at $57,796. The single largest amount was courtesy of Hawthorne for $45,000, and the smallest amount was a paltry $70 for the probation violation.
When she woke up the day after Valentine’s Day in jail, was she thinking how she would break up with the bottle?
