It's not easy for two people to get arrested for driving the same car drunk at one time.
Unless, of course, police attempt to pull one driver over and instead of pulling over, that driver stops in the middle of U.S. 1 and switches seats with a passenger in plain view of a Monroe County Sheriff's Office deputy and his in-car camera.
That's exactly what the Sheriff's Office says Miami sisters Vanessa Miranda, 24, and Steffany, Miranda, 18, did.
Both were booked into the Monroe County Detention Center, simultaneously charged with driving under the influence of alcohol.
Steffany declined to submit to a breath test, while Vanessa's two tests indicated she had blood alcohol levels of .127 and .129 percent. In Florida, the legal limit for being drunk is a blood alcohol content of 0.8 percent
"Even though she was not driving the Volkswagen prior to the traffic stop, by switching seats with Steffany and sitting on the driver's seat, [Vanessa] was in actual physical control of the Volkswagen as it was running and on a travel lane of U.S. 1," Deputy Juan Martin-Reyes wrote in his report.
According to Martin-Reyes' report, the deputy saw the original driver, Steffany, swerving and accelerating and decelerating suddenly near mile marker 23 on U.S. 1 on Saturday night.
Martin-Reyes followed the red Volkswagen sedan for roughly seven miles before putting on his lights to stop the car. According to the report, the car immediately came to a stop "in the lane of traffic" and Martin-Reyes saw the sisters switch seats. They denied it when initially questioned, he said.
The girls also initially denied drinking alcohol before admitting they did so earlier that night on a "reggae boat" in Key West.
Because they both appeared impaired and both had been behind the wheel with the car running, the sisters were asked to perform field sobriety tests. They failed, the deputy wrote, and were arrested for DUI.
