CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) – A woman arrested for DUI last October after hitting a rickshaw pled guilty to DUI Thursday morning.

Kacey Jay, 24 at the time, was charged with driving under the influence and a drug violation for her involvement in a 2018 hit-and-run involving an SUV and a bicycle.

Officers were called to the intersection of Meeting and Calhoun Streets in downtown Charleston after the incident was reported. Along the way, they received a call from a citizen saying he stopped the SUV at the intersection of Calhoun and King.

When officers arrived, they noticed damage to the driver side of Jay’s vehicle. She was arrested after failing field sobriety test – her blood alcohol content was .24.  

Jay didn’t even know she had been in a collision.

In court Thursday, Jay pleaded guilty to the DUI and was sentenced to 24 hours of community service and ordered to pay a $187 conviction fee – she previously served 24 hours in jail.

No one was injured in the collision.
