Drunk driver facing multiple charges following Monday morning DUI crash
At 1:30 this morning, Franklin Police responded to Mallory Station Road and Mallory Lane after receiving a report that a vehicle had crashed into a pole. Witnesses told arriving officers that the driver of that wrecked car got into another vehicle and left the scene. Officers spotted that vehicle a short time later and ultimately arrested 20-year-old Anamaria Sharp, who was driven away from the crash scene by a relative. Officers found a fake ID in Sharp’s wrecked vehicle and determined that she used that fake ID earlier to purchase alcohol.
Charged with DUI, Using a False ID, Underage Consumption of Alcohol, Violation of the Implied Consent Law, Leaving the Scene of a Crash, and Failure to Report a Crash, Sharp is free on the $3,500 bond set by the Magistrate. She is due in court on September 26.
