According to a Myrtle Beach police report, Amanda Lee Adams, 26, was booked into the Myrtle Beach jail around 4:30 a.m.

Police said they found Adams' black Jeep Wrangler with front-end damage and a downed electric pole near US 501 and Broadway Street.

When asked how much she had to drink, Adams told police she had "3 beers and 4 shots."

Police arrested Adams at the scene and took her to jail.  Police said the breathalyzer test showed her blood-alcohol-content (BAC) was .20....that's 2 1/12 times the legal limit in South Carolina.

Adams, who is from Georgia, was charged with driving under the influence.

According to Adams' Facebook page, she describes herself as "the "bless your heart" trucker hat wearing, turtle hunting, four wheel driving, redneck of the Darlin Dogs Empire."

Adams was a relative late-comer to Myrtle Manor, she showed up and moved in with one of the original 2 "weiner girls," eventually forcing one to leave the trailer park.
