A former Hartford city employee faced a judge on drunken driving charges Friday, but the shakeup at Hartford City Hall continued as two more people resigned from their posts.
The backlash from the crash involving former Hartford employee Rhonda Moniz-Carroll continued after she was accused of crashing head-on into another vehicle last Saturday night. According to the police report, when officers tried to arrest Moniz-Carroll, she said, "Are you serious? You're going to arrest me? Do you know who I am?"
Moniz-Carroll used to work for Hartford Public Works.
Her husband said she had a medical condition and wasn't driving drunk, but she didn't take a breathalyzer test.
In court on Friday, a judge continued her case until Oct. 30.
Two Hartford city directors have now stepped down from their posts, continuing the shakeup at Hartford City Hall. Moniz-Carroll's former boss, Public Works Director Kevin Burnham, and Director of Finance Julio Molleda resigned Thursday.
Hartford Mayor Pedro Segarra said he has already appointed interim directors to take over the posts starting Monday.
