Port St. Lucie woman, said God told her to drive 100 mph on U.S. 1 in Fort Pierce

A motorist who was blowing her horn and going 100 mph in a 30-mph zone on U.S. 1 in Fort Pierce at 1 a.m. Tuesday told officers God told her to do it.

Regardless, Melissa Miller, 41, of Port St. Lucie, was arrested on charges of reckless driving and speeding.

She was taken to the St. Lucie County Jail and placed under a $375 bail. In addition to reckless driving, the resident of the 400 block of Northwest Marsala Terrace, is charged with violation of her probation for leaving the scene of an accident with injuries.

After she was stopped, an officer quoted her as saying she was speeding "because I was letting the Lord spirit guide me," according to a police report. She attributed her lengthy horn blowing to "the Lord telling me to do it."

Only in Florida

Oh and there is no way she could drive that fast on US1. Even if God told her to do it!

1. Your right, there's to many lights on US1 for anyone to do 100mph...

My sister lives in PSL and I've visited. Also have been to Fort Pierce.

Did god tell her not to stop at the traffic lights too? lol

5. People used to say "The Devil made me do it..."

Now they say "God made me do it." The demented devolution of evangelical Christianity.

10. Does she work for Allen West, by any chance?

Sounds like she'd be a perfect staff member for him.

12. I pegged the 120mph limit on my Galaxie 500's speedometer and kept going faster.

 

I don't know how fast I made it to, but I'm guessing about a buck 40. That was I-95 from Washington's beltway (4-lane highway toward Bal'mer) and it felt like a back road at that speed. I blew by a cop on the side of the road, did a quick calculation that it would take me 30 seconds to reach my exit ramp, and it took ALL FUCKING THIRTY SECONDS to slow down enough to hit the ramp, and even that was dodgy. I don't even know if the cop bothered to try to chase me, but even an interceptor couldn't have caught up. I never saw any lights. I still have her. The Ford 390 was one of the best engines ever made.

Then there was the '73 Buick Centurian with the 455 4bbl. Having sex at 120 is a good thing. She'd do way more than 120, but keeping control of the car while getting nookie is tough enough at that speed. It was still a rush. She had posi, but at that speed it didn't matter. We called her "The Walrus". The frame gave out. That was typical of late 60's and early 70's GM cars. Same with the fucked up paint - that wasn't a good era for GM.
