Florida Woman Charged with DUI After Boyfriend’s Death

The Florida Highway Patrol has uncovered a new development in the death of an 18-year Jacksonville Sheriff Officer. Vicki Mullins, 45, girlfriend of Michael Hartsfield, 50, is being charged with DUI manslaughter in connection with Hartsfield’s July 30 death.

According to reports, Mullins was driving a Ford Mustang convertible on Fort Caroline Road when she lost control of the vehicle. The Mustang landed in a ditch upside down. Rescue workers had to cut Hartsfield out of the vehicle. He later died at Shands-Jacksonville Medical Center.

Authorities say Mullins’ blood alcohol level was twice the legal limit. On Friday, she was arrested and charged with DUI manslaughter. She was being held on $750,003 bail at the Duval County Jail.

William Moore saves the day once again... I can’t thank him enough for helping me get my life back on track...You’ll be glad he’s on your defense team, I guarantee it. Eric Bailey
William is an amazing lawyer on the first day he took my case from a felony to a misdemeanor. He always answered my calls and text messages, never a problem. He was always the one in court not sending someone else, unlike my last lawyer. 10/10 would recommend. If I ever have any other problems, he will be the first person I call. Shane B.
