unnamed

Yesterday, just after 3 p.m., Sheriff Rick Staly was returning from a Martin Luther King Jr. Day event when he observed a Black Chevrolet approaching the entrance of Andalusia Trail at SR 100 W with heavy passenger side damage. When approached by Sheriff Staly, the driver could not produce a driver’s license but identified herself as Krystal Miller, 35, of Daytona Beach. She was asked to turn off the car when her actions clearly indicated she was impaired. When back-up deputies arrived, Miller was asked to exit the car.

She told Sheriff Staly that she was a dancer at a strip club in Daytona and had been at a bachelor party with “some other girls” in Interlachen (Putnam County) all night and was on her way home. She said she was just tired and had run off the roadway.

Miller told deputies the damage to her car was old and that she had gone “into the ditch” but claimed it was not an accident. She was carrying a black handbag which she opened in plain view and the deputies saw a glass pipe and a plastic bag containing a partially crushed pill.
