NYC: Driver charged in cop’s death had alcohol level nearly twice the legal limit: source

Sources said Jessica Beauvais, 32, was combative with police when she was nabbed on vehicular manslaughter, driving while intoxicated and other charges after slamming into highway officer Anastasios Tsakos, 43, as he directed traffic on the Long Island Expressway around 2 a.m.

Beauvais, who fled the scene and was arrested about a mile away, blew a BAC of 0.15 — nearly twice the legal limit of 0.08, according to high-ranking law enforcement sources.

She allegedly admitted to police that she was drinking vodka in Brooklyn earlier that night, sources added.

Beauvais was “combative” with cops at the scene, sources said.

Hours before the wreck, the 32-year-old posted a lengthy video on Facebook as part of a podcast she hosts.
