The lawyer representing Andrea Sneiderman -- a widow accused of having an affair with the man who murdered her husband -- was arrested on suspicion of DUI, speeding and reckless driving on Thursday.
Attorney Jennifer Little, 33, broke down in tears during her mugshot moment after she allegedly sped down an Atlanta highway at 91 mph while drunk, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.
Little, a former DeKalb County prosecutor, allegedly refused a field and chemical sobriety test. An officer will now have to testify that he or she noticed that Little was driving recklessly and was obviously under the influence.
The lawyer was hired in March by Sneiderman, whose husband Russell was shot dead outside an Atlanta daycare center in November 2010. Witnesses and lawyers are fingering Andrea Sneiderman in that case, claiming that she was involved in an affair with the killer, Hemy Neuman, and knew the details of her husband's death suspiciously early.
Little posted bond shortly after the 12:30 a.m. incident on Thursday. The Journal-Constitution reported that the DUI arrest is not expected to affect her standing in the Georgia Bar Association.
