Vomit-Covered Woman Imagines Cops Pulling Her Over
Officers charged a local woman with drunken driving after they found her sitting in her idle car, which she stopped four houses away from where she lived, the report said.
Marlene J. Meier told officers she was stopped in the 16700 block of Oketo Avenue because that's where she was pulled over by police, according to the report. But the cops said they didn't pull her over while she was driving. Rather, they found the 45-year-old woman, who they said was covered in vomit, sitting in her running car around 9:30 p.m. They got a tip earlier that night from a driver who was reportedly behind Meier. The caller said Meier was all over the road and cruising just 5 mph on 167th Street.
"I advised Marlene that she had vomit all over the front of her shirt and she stated, 'No I don't,'" the report said. "I observed Marlene's speech to be slurred. I also observed an odor of an alcoholic beverage emitting from Marlene's breath as she spoke."
When police asked Meier for her driver's license, she allegedly told them it was "in her purse somewhere," police said. However, she was holding it in her hand, according to the report.
Police said she fell against the car when she got out to perform field sobriety tests, which she failed. She refused to give a breath sample at the police station, according to the report. In her written statement, Meier said she was at a spa party, where she consumed "two to three glasses of wine," according to the report.
