A police lieutenant was canned early Sunday after crossing over the blurry blue line when her fellow officers discovered their drunken colleague driving backwards, honking, through the streets of Florida.
Now ex-cop Christi Ruhtz, 41, was discovered with bloodshot, glassy eyes and reeking of booze in Pinellas, Florida around 2:00 a.m
Rhutz, whod been with the Pinellas County Sherriffs Office since 1998, was immediately fired, according to the report.

Isn’t “Reverse Drunk Driving” actually driving while sober?
Not guilty if she lets her eyebrows grow out more.
My cousin is a retired State Police Captain from CA.
Once in WA, he and my dad and myself went tot he Elks lodge and tied one on. We were not marginal, we were drunk.
Dad and I said we should get a cab even though it was 11 miles home and expensive. Cousin would not have anything to do with that and insisted he would drive.
Sure enough we go pulled over by the County Sheriff on the state hiway 4 miles from home at about 0230.
When asked for his license, cousin handed the young sheriff his badge.
I was surprised at the sincerity of the apologies and the offer of an escort home.
And that’s the 100% truth.
This lady must have pissed somebody off.
I think it’s driving while outtoxicated.
Isnt Reverse Drunk Driving actually driving while sober?
Doesn’t look too bad for a mug shot after being that inebriated.
You won the thread before it ever got off the ground.
At least she was polite enough to bonk while she was driving backwards.......
Live PD ping...I think her (former) county is featured on that show. Who knows, maybe her dept. won an Emmy!
perhaps she had been let off prior with warning not to repeat
...This lady must have pissed somebody off.
19 years service...less than a year before pension eligibility. She must have wanted to know what McCabe felt like coming so close.
Look at her eyes.
Bonking while driving backwards!
Wow, after almost 20 years of service.
I bet she was having a bad day, maybe a romantic letdown.
There’s a bit of a difference between driving home after having a bit too much to drink and drunk driving around town backwards while honking your horn.
“At least she was polite enough to bonk while she was driving backwards.......”
Some typos are great:)
