The ending to last night’s Super Bowl was pretty damn amazing — and even more amazing if you have Comcast in Tucson — but aside from the final score of the game a lot of people are interested in the final tally of arrests made in Tampa last night. Well, much like the final few minutes of the game, the fine people of Tampa did not disappoint.
All in all there were 26 people arrested during the game, and 18 were ejected from Raymond James Stadium. There were also the four small planes who entered the secure air space. Of the arrests, nine were people selling counterfeit tickets and there were a few people selling fake merchandise or credentials. Still, none of them can hold a candle to what one woman accomplished in her drunken stupor. After all, it’s not often these days that you hear about horses getting hit by cars.
From the ST. PETERSBURG TIMES:
Brandi Holt-Drive, 20, of Bradenton, was accused of driving under the influence after she hit a mounted officer at 7 p.m. at of Columbus Drive and Himes Avenue near Raymond James Stadium.
Ginger the horse was from the Bushnell Police Department. The animal and officer were unhurt, police said.
How apropos to have Drive as her last name. Maybe Brandi — who with a name like that no doubt works at one of Tampa’s many gentleman’s clubs — can change her maiden name to Drunk?
Thankfully Ginger was okay because if the Mike Vick case proved anything to us, drunk driving charges just get you fined. You kill an animal, you get sent to jail, and you gotta figure if pit bulls are worth two years then Ginger would have to get her five to ten.
