After her vehicle hit another car while driving on the interstate, the superintendent of the Cherokee County School District was taken into custody for suspicion of driving under the influence.
Gaffney resident Quincie Little Moore, whose husband said that she had gone to the Clemson game on Saturday, was driving home from the event a little after 1:00 am on Sunday.
Moore was said to be driving at an estimated speed of 10-20 mph on I-85 when she allegedly nodded off for a moment and hit into the back of another car on the road.
South Carolina Highway Patrol responded to a call reporting the incident and placed Moore under arrest based on the belief that she had been under the influence of alcohol when the accident occurred.
When Moore was taken into custody she did not consent to a breath test and based on South Carolina law that has the consequence of an immediate loss of one’s driver’s license. She was charged with DUI less than .10, and booked into the Greenville County Detention Center until posting a recognizance bond of $992.
Since this is her first DUI charge, if Moore is found guilty she could face a penalty of a month in jail, a $400 fine, or a combination of the two.
No one was reported as sustaining any injuries in the mishap, and Moore’s status in the school district has not been decided yet. An announcement was released stating that a board meeting has been scheduled for Tuesday where they will discuss the matter.
