The victim of the car crash chased Dina as she tried to leave the scene of the accident. She was taken into custody outside her residence. The court documents stated that a police officer who responded found Dina in the driver seat of a Mercedes car with the engine on. He observed her and said that she had alcohol on her breath, glassy eyes and slurred speech.
