Elderly Wrong-Way Driver Arrested for Driving Under the Influence

SPRING HILL – Age is no factor when it comes to arresting drunk drivers and an elderly woman found that out the hard way after she was stopped for driving the wrong direction on a Spring Hill Drive.

Deputy Ryan Brown responded to the area of Spring Hill Drive and Mariner Blvd early Sunday morning, after receiving reports of a reckless driver. Brown says he observed a Hyundai sitting at a red light in eastbound lanes of Spring Hill Drive but the vehicle was facing westbound. Brown made contact with the driver, 77-year-old Janice Carlton, who appeared to be under the influence. Brown says Carlton had slurred speech, bloodshot eyes, and a strong odor of alcohol on her breath.During an interview with Carlton, Brown Says she admitted to consuming four drinks, so he conducted a series of sobriety exercises, which she failed. Carlton was subsequently arrested for driving under the influence and transported to the Hernando County Jail.

Carlton is free on a $1,000 bond.

  • I know her personally. She needs help. She is a selfish woman who cares only about her and her past. All she does is drink and drink. And honestly she needs to get her license taken away. This is about the 100th time she has been drinking and driving . But this time she got caught

    • How do we know the traffic light wasn’t the culprit ?? Perhaps the light was drunk and got turned around. Did they field test it ??? ONLY KIDDING. I HAVE NO USE FOR DRUNKS – ESPECIALLY WHEN ON THE ROAD!!!! IF U CAN’T HANDLE YOUR BOOZE OR PUT A REASONABLE LIMIT ON IT DON’T DRINK. PERIOD.!!!! I’ve seen soo many here that shouldn’t drink. They get plastered and can’t stand up, fall all over. IT’S NOT FUNNY FOOLS!!

      • It’s only necessary to use a single exclamation or question mark. Capitalizing all letters in a sentence and not others means your use to people not listening to you. Suggest you try a bran muffin.

  • About time…when elderly crash into a biulding…they say poor old person and dont test. The elderly could be impaired for many reasons and not smell of alcohol. Most medication warns not to drive. I came in contact with a wrong way driver on deltona.. .person wasnt drunk..but very old and fragile. .oxygen. .walker. Is this person any less dangerous on the roads as a drunk person? Whatever the reason they were impaired…but walk away and a few days later drives thru a retail store. It’s taken with stride here that most people here shouldnt be driving . if you cant pass field test you cant drive
