A 33-year-old woman involved in a hit-and-run accident attempted to blame her dog for the crash when police showed up at her apartment to place her under arrest.
Wildwood police responded at about 2 p.m. Thursday to the Club Wildwood apartments to investigate a report of a single-vehicle accident.
Witnesses and apartment complex personnel told the police officer that the driver of the vehicle had gone to her apartment.
When the officer went to the apartment, Christina Lamoreaux told the officer she had been driving the vehicle in the accident and that she did not need to stay at the scene because she would pay for the damage, according to the arrest report.
Lamoreaux, who appeared to have been drinking, blamed the accident on her dog and told the officer to arrest her dog, the arrest report indicated.
She refused to complete field sobriety exercises and resisted arrest when the officer attempted to handcuff her.
She was arrested on charges of driving under the influence, hit and run and resisting arrest.
She was booked at the Sumter County Detention Center where bond was set at $2,500.
