SANFORD, FLA. — A limousine driver who was reported to authorities for drunken driving by the teens she drove to a high school prom was sentenced to 10 days in jail after pleading no contest. Christina Tomacelli, 50, of Altamonte Springs, also lost her license for a year and must pay $500 in fines and serve 12 months probation, the Orlando Sentinel reported.
Tomacelli had been driving 10 youths to the Winter Springs High School prom when they got worried about her driving, convinced her to pull over, and grabbed her car keys. The students told authorities Tomacelli swerved all over the road, missed a turn, ran a stop sign, drove on the wrong side of a median, and made a right turn from the center lane. The case received national media attention during prom season last year.
