Officer’s DUI Trial in Federal Court

A police officer with the Virginia Beach Police will not face state charges for her arrest for an alleged DUI. The Commonwealth’s Attorney’s Office has referred the case to federal court as the incident occurred on federal property with Navy officials making the stop and conducting the investigation. 

“After our review, we have determined that U.S. District Court in Norfolk is the appropriate venue for this case.  The incident occurred on federal property, and Navy officials made the stop and conducted the investigation.  The Virginia Beach Police Department was not involved or notified until several hours later,” according to Commonwealth’s Attorney spokeswoman Macie Allen.  

It is alleged that Hobbs had an alcohol concentration nearly three times the legal limit and had kids in the vehicle when she attempted to enter the Naval Air Station Oceana Dam Neck Annex in February.
