Ocala, Florida (The Weekly Vice) -- Tina M. Boggess, a 41-year-old Florida woman suspected of driving under the influence stripped naked when asked to remove her shoes.
According to Marion County deputies, Boggess was originally pulled over after an officer allegedly clocked her driving 82 mph in a 40 mph zone. Boggess was also driving erratically when deputy Micah Moore pulled her over, according to the arrest report.
When the deputy approached Boggess' car, she noted the smell of alcohol and performed a field sobriety test. Although Boggess admitted to drinking three of four beers, she told the officer "I know I've been drinking, but I'm not [expletive] up," according to the arrest report.
Having failed the DUI, Boggess was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence and transported to a holding cell while the officer processed the DUI. When the booking deputy requested that Boggess remove her shoes, she instead unzipped her pants, pulled them down and began removing all of her clothing, according to the sheriff's office report.
Boggess was given a breath test which registered at .157 and .151, nearly twice the legal limit for operating a motor vehicle in Florida.
The Weekly Vice Opinion:
Actually, I think we should cut this woman a little slack. According to County records, it's her first DUI and I think some people being held in a holding cell might think they are being asked to change into a jail uniform. It makes for a funny drunk story - but I'd hardly consider it an act of stupidity.
