CAPE CORAL, Fla.- Cape Coral Police arrested 26-year-old Shanna Marie Coburn-Rice Tuesday night, after she was involved in a single-vehicle accident while allegedly driving under the influence with her daughter in the vehicle.
An anonymous caller contacted police regarding a crash at 2030 NE 2nd Ter. Officers arrived on the scene and found Coburn sitting in the driver's seat with the keys in the ignition and the vehicle running. According to the report, the car had collided with a telephone poll in front of a residence, and sustained serious damage from hitting the pole, a Cape Coral concrete utility box and a garden hose box as well.
Coburn allegedly told officers that she was working at O-Bar before picking her child up from the hospital and heading home. She additionally told police she was out with co-workers from O-Bar and thought it was no place for her daughter, so she left. Finally, Coburn said she had been at O-Bar and had just come from picking her daughter up from the babysitter's.
When EMS arrived on the scene, Coburn stumbled out of the vehicle, but refused treatment for herself and her daughter. Officers reported the suspect smelled strongly of alcohol, was combative and slurring with glazed eyes. After failing sobriety tests, she was arrested for driving under the influence.
During transport to the jail, Coburn allegedly struggled with officers, kicked and screamed incoherently.
DCF released Coburn's daughter to the grandmother.
When contacted, the manager at O-Bar told officers Coburn never entered the bar that night and was not scheduled to work. It was added that the suspect had never done any work at O-Bar yet, as she had called out the one day she had been scheduled.
Coburn is facing multiple charges including DUI, damage to property, resisting an officer with violence and child cruelty.
