New Bedford Woman Posts Pictures Of Mugshot, Fireball, And Full Confession On Facebook After Crashing Twice While Driving Drunk 


Fall River ReporterA New Bedford woman was arrested Sunday after multiple crashes within minutes. According to Detective Robert Rebello, at approximately 9:32 p.m., Officers Jarrod Levesque, Douglas Wenson and Luc Sauve were dispatched to the area of State Road and White’s of Westport for a motor vehicle crash with injuries. Prior to arriving at the scene, dispatch informed responding officers the Fall River Police Department was searching for a vehicle which had left the scene of a crash on Brayton Avenue in their city. At this time, it was unclear as to whether this vehicle was the same vehicle.

Upon Officer Levesque’s arrival, he observed a black Pontiac G5 with severe front end and passenger side damage to the vehicle. The vehicle was facing north across the eastbound travel lane. The rear bumper of the vehicle was against the guard rail. He also noted in his report that airbags had deployed. As he approached the vehicle, Officer Levesque observed a woman sitting on the guard rail beside the driver’s door. The woman was identified as 46-year-old Kristin Medeiros of South Second Street, New Bedford. After questioning Medeiros, Officer Levesque determined she was the operator of the vehicle. Medeiros was slurring her words and her eyes were bloodshot and glassy. Through her mask, Officer Levesque could smell the odor of alcohol on her breath.

Officer Sauve located the area Medeiros left the roadway. While traveling east on State Road, Medeiros left the roadway in the area of 95 State Road and struck a guardrail. Paint transfer was observed at this location along with tire tracks and a fluid trail leading into the building at 95 State Road. The building sustained damage to the façade and parts from Medeiros’ vehicle were found at this location. The vehicle continued eastbound before striking another guardrail and coming to a rest just east of 95 State Road. 

When asked about what had happened, Medeiros stated she was coming from St. John’s Club in Fall River and another vehicle had cut her off which caused the crash. At this time dispatched confirmed Medeiros’ vehicle was the vehicle involved in the crash at the intersection of Brayton Avenue and Route 24, Fall River. At that location a motorcyclist had been struck, run over and the vehicle had fled the scene into Westport. The operator of the motorcycle was transported to Rhode Island Hospital with non-life threatening injuries, according to Rebello.

A witness from St. John’s Club arrived on scene and spoke with Officer Levesque. She stated she had seen Medeiros at the club and she could barely walk. Others at the club were in the process of getting Medeiros a taxi when she made her way to her vehicle. After leaving the bar side of St. John’s Club, the witness stated she fell while attempting to get into her vehicle and struck her head. Medeiros sped off in her vehicle, struck a curb but continued to drive.

If only there were some warning signs.

Usually when you see a Fall River ratchet like this doing ratchet things they either disappear from social media, or they show up on Facebook underneath a report about their arrest to proclaim the various ways in which they dindu nuffin. I was looking forward to the explanation for how she crashed not once, but twice, within minutes, and figured we’d get the “only God can judge” defense because it’s pretty hard to talk your way out of this one.

Not with Big Red though. She did something I’ve never seen in seven years of blogging about ratchets – show up on Facebook to narrate her own ratchetry.

“I was drunk, OK?”

Yea guys, it’s not like she would’ve run over a biker, flea the scene of the crime, and then crash into a guardrail if she was sober. Give her a break.

On her own page she issued an explanation.

Then there was the self-posting of what would normally be the most embarrassing moment of a human being’s life if they didn’t grow up as a ginger in New Bedford.

Next was the admittance that causing two accidents and hitting a man on a motorcycle was Karma biting her in the ass.

Not only that, she also changed her profile picture to her mugshot.

But the best of all was the fact that as soon as she got out of jail one of the first things she did was post her drink of choice.

Fireball – the nectar of the raging alcoholic DCF Mom.

Big Red can’t get enough Fireball. She finds it in between sofa cushions and under her bed like normal people find quarters.

Often with ratchets you hear that they used to be ratchet, but they’ve since changed their ways and they’re not going back. Not Fireball Felicia though.

The old ways for her will always be the current ways.

She’s not going to waste your time telling you that she’s trying to improve her life or anything like that, because she knows you’re not dumb enough to believe it. She’s just trying to survive the day.

She knows there’s only one thing left she’s useful for.

Posting pictures of what probably isn’t even her body on Facebook so she can get the thirstiest menfolk  from last call at the spoke to get in line to see who can feed her some Fireball with a side of skin flute the fastest.

Two minutes later and Kenny Cabral was going to give her the raw dog express on Facebook Live.

Of course you do Kenny. Of course you do.

A quick collection of all the suitors Fireball Felicia has to choose from.

She has her choice of anyone from this parade of losing Keno tickets, but in reality she’d proudly let them all have a turn, as long as they bring Fireball.

She’s ready for it boys.

Just make sure you’re driving.
