University of Virginia student jailed for water and ice cream.
Did this really go that far for a UVA student to be put in jail? She was only had bottled water, cookie dough, and ice cream right? Hit the jump for more details!


Elizabeth Daly, 20, was walking pack to her car after buying water, cookie dough, and ice cream at a supermarket when she was ambushed by seven plain-clothes agents from the Alcoholic Beverage Control division. The seven agents suspected she was carrying a 12 pack of beer, but she was actually carrying LaCroix sparkling water. Police admitted the agents vaulted on the hood of Daly’s car, and she stated one of them drew a gun. Her two roommates in her car tried to get away after the seven agents in plain clothes pounced on them.

Daly said this about the ambush, “They were showing unidentifiable badges after they approached us, but we became frightened, as they were not in anything close to a uniform. I couldn’t put my windows down unless I started my car, and when I started my car they began yelling to not move the car, not to start the car. They began trying to break the windows. My roommates and I were … terrified.

Daly and her roommates managed to leave the parking lot, but were immediately stopped by a vehicle with identifiable lights and sirens. She eventually explained that she bought the water and junk food for a sorority benefit.

The seven Alcoholic Beverage Control agents were not satisfied. They charged Daly with three felonies: one count of eluding police and two counts of assaulting a law enforcement officer. In Virginia, each of these Class Six felonies carries up to five years in prison and up to $2,500 in fines.

This happened on April 11th, and the criminal charges are set to be dropped this week.
