LAKELAND, FL. – On Wednesday, December 15, 2021, PCSO detectives arrested 54-year-old Lisa Breeding of Lakeland for DUI Manslaughter and other charges stemming from a vehicle crash that occurred on June 20, 2021, in Lakeland that resulted in the death of 22-year-old Teresa Hammond of Lakeland.
During the course of the investigation, detectives reviewed the vehicle’s crash data recorder that showed Breeding was traveling at 83 miles per hour at the time of the crash. The area of the crash was a 25 mile per hour zone.
Additionally, a blood sample from Breeding taken immediately following the crash was analyzed and showed significant measured amounts of Alprazolam, Amphetamines, and Methamphetamines, rendering her impaired at the time of the crash.
“I don’t know how many times I have to say this – there is never a reason to drive impaired. Because of this woman’s reckless actions, a family has lost a loved one. Please, don’t get behind the wheel of a vehicle if you are impaired. Call a friend or family member – or take advantage of a rideshare program. This is for your safety and the safety of others on the roadway,” said Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd.
Breeding was arrested for DUI Manslaughter (F2), Vehicular Homicide (F2), DUI with Serious Injury (F3), DUI with Property Damage (M1) (5 counts). She is currently in the Polk County Jail and being held with no bond.
