DUI Bride back in the news for released body cam footage

National

It was a traffic stop that made international headlines.

A woman involved in a car accident — suspected of DUI — on her wedding day.

The incident happened in March 2018.

The woman’s attorney said she was wearing a sundress — not a wedding dress.

But newly released body-cam footage tells a different story.


The responding officer notices amber young is shaken up.

Just involved in a car crash – she repeatedly denies having any alcohol.

The officer tells her they’re focused on public safety – hers, and everyone else’s.

Young denies it again and continues to bring up her wedding.

Something Marana police pointed out in a tweet with this picture the day it happened.

That tweet was later taken down.

The department said it was to prevent any further embarrassment.

A statement said police made up the wedding day narrative.

That this was a sundress, not a wedding dress.

Whatever it is, young held onto her dress during field sobriety tests.

Officers called in a few more tests, including a blood draw.

They took her in for processing.

Nearly a year after the initial arrest –

Young pleaded guilty to extreme d-u-i and criminal damage from the crash.

She served two days in jail, seven on house arrest and she’s currently on probation.
