Michele Lee Burke, a 54-year-old from Key Largo who recently pulled off the perfect crime—almost. It all started when Michele decided to blame her innocent Yorkshire terrier for her troubles with the law, but little did she know that her misadventure would turn into a HUGE mess.
According to Local 10, Michele was cruising along the Overseas Highway, when suddenly, the police lights start flashing behind her. What’s her reaction, you ask? She turns on her right blinker and eventually grinds to a halt. But the real fun begins when the officers approach her vehicle. Where she blames her driving on her poor little dog.
In addition, there’s a “strong odor” of alcohol, and her left eye was shut making her look like Popeye the Drunken sailor.
She insisted that she only had one drink and even jokes about her one-eyed situation. The officers, then decided it was best to make her take a road sobriety test.
Yorkshire terrier terror:
Now, Michele seems like a woman who knows her way around Facebook because she claims she’s seen the test there. She laughs it off and tells the officer to “f— off.” Classy, Michele, real classy.
When the officers try to arrest her, things take a turn for the worse. Michele goes all Jackie Chan on them, kicking, screaming, and threatening to throat-punch Sergeant Davis! Boy oh boy! Somebody ate thier spinach!
Eventually, they manage to cuff her, but not before she’s given them a taste of her MMA skills. After all that chaos, Michele finally admits to having “one too many,” but it’s a little too late. She’s locked up on a felony charge of resisting an officer with violence and a misdemeanor charge of driving under the influence. Good luck explaining this one to your Yorkshire terrier, Michele.
