Florida Vice Mayor Linda Norris, 59, was arrested for driving under the influence after she rear-ended another vehicle and caused a chain-reaction crash.

On Wednesday, police received reports of a red Tesla driving “erratically” before the driver drove into a car and pushed it into the rear end of another vehicle.  

The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office revealed that officers discovered an open container of Fireball whiskey in Norris’ center console along with two other closed bottles of alcohol in her purse.

After Norris exited her vehicle, authorities realized the Oldsmar politician was intoxicated. “They immediately noticed she was slurring her words and her movements appeared unstable,” the Sheriff’s Office said in a statement.

“Deputies asked her where she was going and where she came from but said Norris was unable to provide a clear answer.”

The Tampa Bay Times reported that there were no injuries sustained from the three-car pile-up. Nonetheless, Hillsborough Sheriff Chad Chronister criticized the mayor’s irresponsible behavior.

“It’s infuriating to know some drivers have no respect for the law or the lives around them,” he said in a statement. 

“Furthermore, Linda Norris is a public official and should behave accordingly. Instead, she serves as an example of our commitment to identifying and catching those who break the law, no matter who they are.”

Norris currently holds the position of Vice Mayor and Council Member, Seat 1 in the city of Oldsmar.

Norris, who refused to take a breathalyzer exam, failed the field sobriety test and was arrested for refusal to submit to testing and misdemeanor citations for DUI third conviction. As of Wednesday, she was held in Hillsborough County jail in place of $1,000 bail.
