Amanda Woods is a bartender at a Texas pool hall. After getting off work, she told police she had had ‘a few drinks.” She was seen going 80 mph down a large residential street at 4 a.m., running two red lights before finally smashing into two cars, killing one person. After blowing a .20 on the breathalyzer, she appeared in court with a black eye and an arm in a sling. Houston Press has the story.
