National & World

PHOENIX, Ariz. (KPNX) – Newly released police body camera footage shows an Arizona woman’s unique attempt to avoid a DUI arrest.

Amber Young was questioned by police in Marana, Arizona last March after she was involved in a three car crash.

In the video, Young, wearing a white dress, tells the officers, “I just want to get to my wedding.”

Young tells officers she hadn’t been drinking and was simply nervous about her “big day.”

After failing a field sobriety test, she was handcuffed, arrested, and later charged with “extreme DUI.”

Investigators later learned that she was not on the way to a wedding.
