A woman who allegedly ran a Boston Globe truck off the road while under the influence decided it would be a good idea to call a cop racist, threaten him with a voodoo curse, and show off how she was cheating the welfare system. Smart.
Vivencia Bellegarde was charged with 'drunken driving causing serious injury' after her 2006 Cadillac DTS reportedly ran a Boston Globe truck off the road and caused a crazy crash where the truck flew off an overpass. When her damaged car was pulled over by the police, she did a number of strange things.
She mocked the arresting officer for paying for food, because she gets hers for free. She flashed three EBT cards, one of which was hers and the other two of other people. She also said she was from Haiti and would put a "voodoo curse" on the officer.
These are all things you don't do to a cop pulling you over, FYI.
She also, and this is the really smart move, told cops that she "didn’t care about the guy she hit because he isn’t dead and that all she cares about is smoking a cigarette." Yeah. Good.
Bellegarde has a history with traffic violations, with 10 previous license suspensions including one for a drunken driving offense in the past. She is being held on $10,000 bail.
The driver of the truck, Paul Healy, Jr., is in fair condition at the hospital and has declined to comment. Something Ms. Bellegarde should consider doing herself.
