If something hilarious yet tragically ironic is going to happen, chances are it will happen in Florida, men urinating on chicken at the grocery store notwithstanding. The latest of Florida's wacky produce: former Gainesville Mothers Against Drunk Driving chapter president Debra Oberlin was arrested for, you guessed it, drunk driving in Gainesville.

Pulled over for veering across lanes of traffic at about 1:10 a.m., Oberlin had bloodshot eyes and smelled of alcohol, according to the incident reports. Oberlin failed a field sobriety test.

Oberlin's blood alcohol level was then found to be between .234 and .239 according to two Breathalyzer tests, though she says she only drank four beers before hopping--or more likely, stumbling--into her car.

Thank you, Florida, for your fantastic fruits. MADD: you got some 'splaining to do.
