Finally. This officer gets what she deserves. She knows that driving while under the influence is against the law. She, nor any other person in SC is above that law. She has gotten away with so much in the past - her history is riddled with prior disciplinary violations - the article does not note this correctly as that information may not have been given out.
If some wonder why the arresting officers did not give her a break is it very possible that because she has been given too many in the past and they finally realise that they have a liability on their hands. Lisa should be charged as any normal citizen. Full stop.

It is good to see an Officer getting charged with driving under the influence. Certainly, standard fair within law enforcement is to cut a fellow officer plenty of slack when they get stopped for driving under the influence. Cops rarely get charged with this offense; not because they don't drive drunk; but because their actions are hidden by "The Big Blue Diaper". This blue diaper is typically very effective with keeping all the crap that happens within law enforcement from leaking out and getting the publics attention.

It sounds like "Knows The Deal" above is on to something. Could it be that this cop has gotten away with plenty of crap in the past; and someone finally said enough is enough?
