PARKED UNDER THE INFLUENCE

17000 block of West Colonial Drive. DUI Accompanied by a Minor. At 8:46 p.m., officers found a man asleep while parked at a gas pump with the engine running. The driver’s 5-year-old son was asleep in the back seat. After several window knocks, the driver woke. The driver admitted intoxication and had five empty alcohol containers and a marijuana pipe, according to reports. The driver said he was shot in the thigh in the military, which would not inhibit participation in sobriety tests, which he failed. He was arrested on charges of marijuana possession, child neglect and DUI accompanied by a minor, with a BAC of .228. The Department of Children and Families procured the boy.

He wished to prosecute criminally and testify.

WINDERMERE

JAN. 3

DRUNKEN DRIVING

200 block of Security Circle. Driving Under the Influence. At 8:02 p.m., an officer patrolling Conroy Windermere Road saw a vehicle speeding behind his squad car. The suspect passed him via the lane of oncoming traffic, driving completely over a yellow double-line. Oncoming traffic had to swerve off road to avoid crashes. The suspect rear-ended another car before passing it, completely in the lane of oncoming traffic. The driver could find only her license and ignored some questions while slurring her answers. The officer learned she had been arrested in the same car in October in Windermere on DUI charges and asked her to exit the car, and how fast she was going. She said, “Too fast for Windermere.” She said she had had no alcohol for three weeks and then cut off officer instructions. After he told her not to begin, she began and was told many times to return to start. On arrest, she refused to walk, prompting police to force her into the squad car. In the process, she kicked an officer in the thigh before officers restrained her.
