You know Lisa Hayward? Of course not. She plays the Ann Curry part of newsreader on WSFL-TV's fledgling, often-re-tooled morning show, which hardly anyone watches. Well, she crashed her car into a tree Wednesday night and was arrested with a blood alcohol level two times the legal limit.
The Sun-Sentinel reports the crash happened near 800 NE 26th Ave. in Pompano Beach Wednesday night. Hayward's blood alcohol level came in at 0.17 percent, which is more than two times the legal limit of 0.08 percent.
She was bailed out on a $2,500 bond but faces four charges, including DUI.

The funny thing is that the Sun-Sentinel broke the story. The paper is owned by the Tribune Co., which also owns WSFL, and the station and paper share news resources.
