A 22-year-old Evans woman injured in a violent, alcohol-related crash in February has again been charged with driving under the influence.

Jenna Victoria Sevigny was arrested last week and charged with DUI and failing to dim her headlights, according to a Columbia County Sheriff’s Office report.

Just before 4 a.m. Oct. 3, Deputy J.A. Brogdanow pulled Sevigny over on Evans to Locks Road near Blue Ridge Drive when she did not dim her headlights, Capt. Steve Morris said.

Brogdanow suspected Sevigny had been drinking, but she refused to submit to a Breathalyzer test, Morris said. She was charged with DUI-less safe and booked into the Columbia County Detention Center, where she was released the next day after posting $2,200 bond.

Charges, including DUI, related to the single-vehicle crash in February are still pending against Sevigny in Columbia County Probate Court. She was sent to the hospital with injuries from that accident, which occurred about 3 a.m. Feb. 20. Sevigny’s vehicle ran off North Belair Road near Furys Ferry Road and slammed into a pine tree, splitting the car in two.

Sevigny, who was partially ejected from the vehicle, was treated at the Medical College of Georgia Hospital and charged after her release with DUI, failing to wear a seat belt, driving too fast for conditions, failure to maintain lane and speeding.

She was released from jail on those charges after posting $4,400 bond.

This individual is a potential killer.
Unpublished

She is not a qualified motorist. She is an irresponsible member of society who should loose her privileges. One who repeats the same error expecting a different result. She should have her drivers license taken and her vehicle license plate. She can get a sober responsible friend or family member to take her to work. She needs to enter a clinic and get this monkey off her back before she kills someone.

Yep, this one's a waste. Lock

Yep, this one's a waste. Lock her up for 5 years or so to dry her out and take some of the partying out of her.

These are the kinds of folks

These are the kinds of folks DUI laws should be designed to hammer, not the guy/gal who had a couple of glasses of wine and get caught up in the checkpoint dragnet and haven't exhibited any impaired driving behavior.

"not the guy/gal who had a couple of glasses of wine"
Just the thing going through the drug induced head of someone thinking they can drive just fine after a few. This is the problem. It's not the amount of alcohol, it's the stupid stuff "it" can tell you you can do even in small amounts. Where else is this applicable? Your surgeon? How many do you want them to have just before they cut on you? Your Pilot? ANYONE willfully driving while impaired should get the fullest brunt of the law and be thankful it was a police officer that stopped them and not a family of four coming home from the fair.

My thoughts

First thing, where is she driving from at that time of the morning? I didn't think that places stayed open that late. The other time it was 2:30 to 3:00 am I believe. This one is 4:00 am she is out and about pretty late or early however you look at it.

I would say she needs help with her drinking problem before she kills someone or herself. If she doesn't drink every day then when she does drink she drinks till she gets drunk apparently..either way she needs some help.

Wonder how she goes to work after partying all night.

Where are all the comments from the Columbia County people? They usually comment on Richmond County wrecks.

Shear Contempt! This woman

Shear Contempt! This woman needs to learn who Pat and Charlie are and utilize the two. What is going on in her head? 4:30a.m. and she's traveling on the streets drunk? If she's been at a bar until closing time then she had some time to sober up a little,you know at Krystals. Any way I remember her mug shot from the last time she was booked and at time she looked way too old to be stupid drunk. It's not so cute on you any more.

An Alcoholic??

Kind of young to be an alcoholic, but very possible. If this woman is not restricted from driving, she is going to kill someone, and possibly herself!!She really needs some "hard" convictions and punishment, maybe it will get her attention......and maybe it won't. I believe we will be hearing of her again..

Her Bail

I'm thinking that maybe a prosecutor somewhere is going to move to revoke her bail on the February DUI...
