A Keys driver is accused of swerving her truck into the path of a Harley-Davidson motorcycle. She then continued driving to a marina — which, for police, is conveniently located right next to the Monroe County Detention Center.
State troopers and Keys deputies caught up with Martha Ramer, 38, and promptly took her into custody in the parking lot.
From there, Key West police officer Jesse Young wrote in a report, "I transported Ramer across the parking lot to the Monroe County Detention Center" next door at 5525 College Rd.
Ramer is charged with hit and run in a crash involving injury and two counts of drunk driving-serious bodily injury, all felonies.

Florida Highway Patrol Lt. Kathleen McKinney says Ramer was driving a 2007 Chevy truck west on Second Street on Stock Island about 6:40 p.m. Monday. Darren Stupp, riding the 1997 Harley, was northbound on U.S. 1 in the inside lane. Ramer allegedly drove into Stupp's path and the bike went to the pavement.
Ramer reportedly drove off but a witness followed her to the Sunset Marina and stayed until Monroe Sheriff's Office deputies and state troopers arrived and ID'd Ramer.
At the jail, Ramer reportedly had blood alcohol levels of .249 percent and .245 percent — more than triple Florida's legal limit of being drunk, .08 percent.
Stupp was taken to Lower Keys Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries.
