HAINES CITY, Fla. – On Tuesday, Traffic Homicide detectives arrested 51-year-old, Sandra Mayberry of Haines City, for DUI Manslaughter (F2). Mayberry was the driver of a single-vehicle crash that occurred on April 25, 2020, which killed her passenger, 57-year-old Michael Browning, also of Haines City.
According to the affidavit, “A search warrant was obtained for Mayberry’s blood collected at the time of her admission to the hospital. The blood was sent to FDLE for analysis. The results came back with an alcohol level of 0.220 g/100ml of blood. This is almost 3 times the legal limit.”
“With so many options for alternate transportation, especially since the advent of ride share apps, there is no excuse to get behind the wheel of a vehicle if you’ve been drinking. Just like in this scenario, the outcome can be fatal. So, please, don’t drink and drive.” –Grady Judd, Sheriff
Mayberry’s criminal history includes 3 prior felonies, and 2 out of state charges from Tennessee.
