In an effort to protect and serve, agents of the Virginia Alcohol Beverage Control Board surrounded her car with guns drawn. Terrified it was a robbery or worse, they drove off. After 911 confirmed that the agents were law enforcement, the women stopped.

Once the protecting and serving got wide press coverage, charges were dropped.
She sued for $40 million. It was reported yesterday that she settled for $212, 500.
