Lakeland woman faces DUI, hit and run charges in downtown Tampa

TAMPA — A woman faces DUI and hit and run charges after crashing into three cars Monday evening, one deliberately, Tampa police said.

Toni Stickle, 31, had a blood alcohol level of 0.212, which is over 0.08, the level at which the state presumes impairment, police said.

Stickle was driving westbound on Adamo Drive when she hit another car and drove off. The other driver called 911 and notified police.

A Tampa police officer spotted Stickle's 2007 Kia and tried to pull her over near the intersection of Adamo Drive and N 22nd Street. Rather than stopping, Stickle rammed the car in front of her and pushed it out of her way as she drove off, police said.

Stickle hit another car at the intersection of Channelside Drive and Cumberland Avenue before police pulled her over. She got out of the car and tried to run before finally surrendering.

She was charged with two counts of assault with a deadly weapon, fleeing police, leaving the scene of a crash with property damage, driving under the influence and two counts of driving under the influence with property damage.

She was being held Tuesday morning on $18,750 bail at the Hillsborough County Jail.
