God may work in strange and mysterious ways — but does that include making a woman drive 100 mph in a 30 mph zone?
That’s the excuse Melissa Miller gave cops who pulled her over early Tuesday after witnessing her speeding and blowing her horn near Fort Pierce, Fla.
When authorities questioned why she was driving so fast, she explained it was “because I was letting the Lord spirit [sic] guide me,” according to TCPalm.com. and claimed she banged the car horn long and hard because of “the Lord telling me to do it.”
The arresting officers didn’t need the Lord to tell them what to do — it was all there in the law books. Miller, 41, of Port St. Lucie, was arrested on charges of reckless driving and speeding, according to MSN.com.
Miller was taken to the St. Lucie County Jail and placed under a $375 bail, WFTS-TV reported. In addition to reckless driving, she was charged with violation of her probation for leaving the scene of an accident with injuries.
The bail may be a lot, but surely the Lord will provide.
