But Lisa Cleveland, (right) can thank Rudy Ramos, one of two men she struck, for her not getting prison time.
"The only reason I offered probation was because he didn’t want to see her go to prison," Tarrant County Assistant District Attorney Bruce Fyfe said Wednesday.
Cleveland faced a maximum of 10 years in prison on the intoxication assault charge and five years on the other charge.
Ramos, who was awarded the Bedford Employee Commitment Award in 2007, suffered a shattered pelvis, torn ligaments, damaged cartilage and a dislocated knee. He also had severe lacerations to his head and face.
The other man was treated and released.
