And the award for the first arrest of the 2017 session goes to……..Shelby Hobbs of Ron Sachs Communications Group, busted last night for DUI by the Tallahassee Police department according to Leon County Sheriffs’ Office booking report. She bonded out that same night.
Was she celebrating her recent promotion to Senior Account Executive that was announced less than two weeks ago?!?
According to Hobbs bio, she served in the Executive Office of the Governor and led the communication efforts as the Communication Director for the Florida IT Career Alliance before joining the Sachs Media Group. She also currently serves on the board for the Tallahassee Ultimate League.
The Tallahassee Police Department provided us a copy of the police report, which can be viewed here: PC Shelby Hobbs
In the report, TPD alleges that, “Hobbs was leaning against the vehicle and used it for support while speaking with me. She stated she was at a dinner meeting with friends tonight and stated it was just downtown. She seemed unsure of the location and stated she went to “several” locations.”
This sounds like a typical night for insiders in Tallahassee during committee week.
We have requested a statement from Hobbs, and we will follow up the story if/when when we hear back.
