BOOZING DRIVER KRISTEN WATTS WAS 4 TIMES LEGAL LIMIT WHEN SHE HIT FHP TROOPER HEAD-ON AND LEFT TROOPER WITH HEAD INJURIES
Despite her actions in crashing through a toll booth and barricades while headed for runners on the Skyway 10K, Kristen Watts shows she is a good person by lecturing everyone from her Facebook page to understand what racists they are and why BLM was setting fire to American cities….and don’t forget she wants everyone to get their shots. Watts is still in the slammer being held on $50,000 bond.
PALMETTO, Fla. – Florida Highway Patrol troopers put their lives on the line to protect thousands of runners at the Skyway 10K when a car careened past roadblocks on the southern side of the bridge during the race Sunday morning.
It happened around 8:45 while the race was well underway. Troopers say a Sarasota woman sped toward the road closure on Interstate 275 at U.S. 41, but instead of taking the detour, she smashed through traffic cones and around barricades, right past troopers guarding the toll plaza.
The troopers stopped on the roadway when they got close to the oncoming BMW, which FHP says was driven by 52-year-old Kristen Kay Watts.
“While thousands of runners were on the Skyway Bridge in Florida this morning, a drunk driver was headed northbound towards the closed interstate and the crowd of runners. After blowing past the U.S. 41 checkpoint, driving over road cones and around barricades, the DUI driver then blew through the toll booth checkpoint.
Putting her own life on the line, a Florida State Highway Patrol Trooper positioned her marked Tahoe head-on to stop the drunk driver, saving countless lives. Hero is an understatement. Thank God for the Trooper, her selfless service, and her bravery. I am pleased to report, I have word from a representative from the FHP PBA that she is okay and is going to be released.”
