The following is from Richmond Hill Police Department reports:

May 5 – Officer Donnie Crosby clocked a vehicle on Hwy. 17  near Plantation Road traveling 59 mph in a 45 mph zone.
The officer pulled the vehicle over and the driver, a Richmond Hill woman, who allegedly appeared very intoxicated due to her bloodshot, glassy eyes and slurred speech.
When asked, the driver claimed to have had three bottles of beer and agreed to field sobriety test. When asked to stand on one leg, the driver said her leg was too swollen to do the test and also that she knew she was drunk so the test was unnecessary.
After testing positive for alcohol and also admitting to being drunk, the woman was charged with DUI.
She was transported to St. Joseph Hospital in Savannah after complaining of chest pains.
