Machelle Dean, the mother-in-law of George Zimmerman, was arrested for a DUI in Volusia County.
This according to the Orlando Sintenial:
“Machelle Dean, whose daughter Shellie Zimmerman is married to George Zimmerman, was arrested Aug. 8 after witnesses called authorities to report a reckless driver on State Road 415 in Osteen.
Dean, of Lake Mary, told deputies she has prescriptions for hydrocodone, Xanax and carisoprodol.
She told deputies she took at least two of the painkillers before driving.
According to a report from the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office, witnesses told deputies Dean was swerving in and out of her lane, almost crashing into oncoming traffic several times.
She also nearly hit a pedestrian and construction cones, the report said.
A witness traveling behind Dean’s Lincoln sedan called 911 and then stopped when the Lincoln pulled off the road.
One witness told deputies they were “certain the driver of the vehicle was going to kill someone or themselves.”
When the police arrived on the scene, Dean’s words were slurred and had watery eyes. She also failed the field sobriety tests that were administered. This summer Dean’s daughter, Shellie Zimmerman was arrested on a perjury charge after she lied about her finances during a hearing for her husband’s murder case.
On February 27th, George Zimmerman was arrested for killing unarmed Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Florida. He still awaiting trial, but his lawyers say that he fears for his life.
