Mary Ann Gardner, MD, a 49-year-old orthopedic surgeon at the James A. Haley Veterans Administration Hospital in Tampa, Fla., was arrested for driving under the influence early Monday morning, police said.

A local couple shot this video of Dr. Gardner driving her black Toyota FJ cruiser erratically on a Tampa highway.

A breathalyzer estimated Dr. Gardner's blood alcohol content to be twice the legal limit. Florida's legal limit for blood alcohol content is .08.

Dr. Garnder was released after posting $500 bond. Calls for comment to the VA hospital were not returned.

Dr. Gardner is a 1985 graduate of Brown University. She attended medical school at UCLA, obtaining her MD in 1989. Following a residency in orthopedic surgery at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation, she performed a fellowship in orthopedic sports medicine at Vanderbilt University.
