(Newser) – Pro tip: If you’re going to crusade against drunk driving, you should probably avoid doing it yourself. Actually, you should probably avoid doing it regardless. But these lessons were lost on Debra Oberlin, the former head of the Gainesville, Fla., chapter of Mothers Against Drunk Driving. The 48-year-old was pulled over last week for driving erratically, the Gainseville Sun reports. After flunking a field sobriety test, Oberlin blew a whopping .234 and .239 on a pair of breathalyzer tests—just a hair over Florida's .08 limit. She told officers she’d had four beers.
