PepperTree Apartments woman with history of DUIs jailed again

Christina Lamoreaux

A PepperTree Apartments woman with a history of drunk driving arrests was arrested after a police chase in Mount Dora.

Christina Lamoreaux, 38, of Wildwood, is free on $11,000 bond following her arrest by Mount Dora police early Friday morning on charges of fleeing/attempting to elude, driver’s license suspended due to DUI and resisting arrest.

Lamoreaux had been free on bond following a crash in November at the entrance to Oxford Oaks on U.S. 301. In that crash, she was arrested on a charge of driving under the influence and cited for having an open container of alcohol in her vehicle. She refused to provide a breath sample. That case is still pending in Sumter Count Court.

The Chicago native in 2015 had been involved in a hit-and-run accident at Club Wildwood. She attempted to blame her dog for that crash and ordered law enforcement to take her dog into custody – rather than her. She pleaded no contest on Oct. 29, 2015 to a charge of driving under the influence, lost her license for one year and was placed on 12 months probation. She was also ordered to perform 100 hours of community service. Lamoreaux won early termination of her probation on July 21, 2016 after providing proof of completion of community service and proof of restitution.
