Weeki Wachee, Florida (The Weekly Vice) -- Deputies and highway patrol troopers have seen it all during DUI stops. Lying suspects, fighting suspects, crying suspects and just plain weird suspects. But even police officers need a break sometimes and they sure got one over the weekend.
Jayne Carr, a 42 year old Florida woman, was weaving heavily into other traffic in her yellow Ford Focus when deputies pulled her over on suspicion of driving while intoxicated around 8:00 p.m. Saturday.
Deputies who stopped the car noted a strong smell of alcohol from her, slurred speech and bloodshot eyes. It was time for a field sobriety test.
She exited the vehicle, parked at the intersection of Commercial Way and Glen Lakes Blvd, and agreed to stand on one leg after refusing to take a breath test. Perhaps she knew she'd flatly fail the breath test, but thought she might at least take a shot at the balance test. According to deputies, she was unable to perform the test.
The deputy offered to try one more field sobriety test, the dreaded finger to nose test. Head tilted back, eyes closed and..... Well that's when the woman decided she had quite reached her limit with taking tests. That's when the deputies break came.
"I know I'm drunk, so go ahead and take me to jail," said Carr, prompting the officer to just 'get on with it'.
Hernando County deputies arrested the woman for driving under the influence and possession of drug paraphernalia. The second charge came upon the discover of a wire mesh screen allegedly used for smoking narcotics, which was found in the woman's purse.
