Virginia Beach woman charged with DUI

A 35-year-old Virginia Beach woman was recently arrested for driving under the influence and damaging state property after officers allegedly observed her driving recklessly on I-264. State police reported that the woman was driving the wrong-way on the interstate, and almost collided with an officer as the unit attempted to stop her vehicle. Police reportedly slowed interstate traffic, placed spike strips to slow her vehicle down and as her vehicle slowed, officers boxed her in. The woman's vehicle then reportedly collided with a trooper's vehicle, causing the vehicle to sustain damages. Fortunately, there were no injuries.

Statutory rape in Virginia

Rape and date rape generally refer to forcing someone to engage in sexual activity without their consent. In statutory rape cases, force is generally not a requirement.
