A Crossville woman was arrested in Daytona Beach, Florida after she went on a drunken rampage and allegedly tried to run over her husband during Bike Week and seriously injured two other people on a motorcycle. WFTV has identified 49-year-old Tina Byrd as the person behind the wheel of a pickup truck that was seen driving recklessly along Atlantic Avenue in Daytona Beach around 7:30 p.m. Friday. According to The Daytona Beach News Journal, Byrd told police that just prior to the crash she had four double shots of Fireball within the past two hours and then "tried to run over her husband and kill him with the truck" after he had struck her. Byrd ended up crashing her truck into a motorcycle carrying two riders who were both ejected. They suffered severe upper body and head injuries. Police say the motorcycle was completely in pieces but fortunately both riders are expected to survive. Byrd faces a host of charges including two counts of DUI with serious bodily injury and one count of aggravated battery. She was reportedly booked into the Volusia County Branch Jail Saturday on $66,500 bond.
