A 45-year-old Grand Haven woman apologized for a drunken driving crash in Grand Haven on Aug. 23, 2017. 

Lisa Marie Davis was also charged with failure to stop at a property damage crash that day.

“I know it’s dangerous for me to drink, because I black out,” Davis said during sentencing Monday in Ottawa County Circuit Court.

Since the incident, Davis has successfully completed intensive outpatient treatment and regularly attends AA, said her attorney, John Hayes. She has also applied to participate in drug treatment court.

Judge Karen Miedema noted that Davis’ 0.20 blood alcohol level at the time of her arrest was “pretty significant.” The judge also noted Davis’ prior drunken driving convictions in 2008 and 2012.

The judge ordered Davis to serve 60 days in jail, with work release allowed. Davis must also complete 60 days of community service as well as the drug treatment court. Once out of jail, she will be on probation for two years. She must pay a $1,000 fine and her vehicle will be immobilized for one year.

“I just feel so bad,” Davis said. “I’m never going to drink again. I’m scared I’m going to hurt somebody.”
