A 40-year-old Caledonia woman cited for suspicion of drunk driving probably should have taken her friend up on a limousine ride home on Saturday.
The woman was also cited for having a prohibited blood-alcohol content, failing to stop at a stop sign and operating a car without insurance, according to a report by the Caledonia Police Department.
A Caledonia Police officer saw the woman driving a 2013 Kia Optima as she failed to stop at a stop sign at 11:25 p.m. Saturday on Six Mile and Middle roads. A limousine was following the woman to her house and was being driven by a friend.
After conducting a traffic stop, the woman had trouble finding her driver’s license, but the officer saw that she had it in her wallet. Instead, the woman gave the officer her credit card. Smelling alcohol, the officer asked her she had been drining and the woman told the officer “she had a few beers” at her friend’s house in Cudahy, according to the police report.
The driver of the limousine told the police that he offered the woman a ride home because he knew she had been drinking, but the woman refused to take him up on his offer and he was following her home.
Because of the cold temperatures and because the woman was wearing “furry 8-inch high slippers,” the officer told the woman he wanted her to go to the South Shore Fire Station to do a field sobriety test. The woman went to the station and while taking off her slippers during the test she fell twice, according to the police report.
While at the police station the officer noted in the report that the woman had several mood changes. She called him “Honey” or “Sweetie” and asked him if he wanted to “‘spar naked’ with her” because she had a black belt in martial arts. The woman also cried, said she lived with her parents and that they were going to be angry with her. Turning her anger at the police officer, the woman told him that he was “ruining her life.”
The woman’s blood-alcohol level was .20, well over the legal limit, according to the report.
The limousine driver then took the woman home.
