A Good Woman is Hard to Find.
I’ve been too busy lately to write in the blog as much as I would like but some things you just can’t let pass you by……
The best thing about this story is it gives me hope that “she” may still be out there:
Green means stop for drunk concert-goer
A woman was arrested on multiple DUI charges, traffic obstruction, and being a minor in possession of alcohol Feb. 6 at 1:31 a.m.
Police responded to the area of East Speedway Boulevard and North Cherry Avenue after a SafeRide employee reported that a woman was passed out in her vehicle. When police arrived, they saw a stopped, running car at a green light, facing eastbound on Speedway.When the officer approached the car, he saw the woman was asleep, with her dress pulled up to her stomach and her underwear pulled down to her mid-thighs.
The officer knocked on the window several times. She did not respond, so he opened the door and began to shake her arm. Upon opening the door, he saw a three-quarters-empty bottle of Sailor Jerry Navy Rum on the floorboard of the passenger side. There was a strong odor of intoxicants coming from the woman and the car.
After about two minutes of trying to wake her up, she awoke, saying, “No, Clint, not right now.”
The officer corrected her and introduced himself. The woman appeared to become more coherent. She was asked to pull up her underwear and pull down her dress. While doing this, she took her foot off of the brake and began to move forward. The officer put the vehicle in park to keep it from moving.
When the vehicle was stopped, the woman asked, “So what’s that problem officer?”
Police asked her if she was OK and if she had been injured. The woman said she was fine. She was then asked if she knew where she was, to which she said, “Uh yeah, I’m coming back from the Slightly Stoopid concert.”
Tucson Fire Department arrived to examine the woman. They determined that she was fine and left the scene.
Police asked the woman if she had been drinking. She said, “OK officer, I’ll tell you the truth, yes I have been.” The officer noted that her speech was slow and slurred.
The woman was taken to the median while an officer moved her car. The woman staggered to the area with another officer. She was then taken to a nearby parking lot for more questioning.
Police asked her if she would do a field sobriety test. She said, “No, please, my stomach hurts from cramping.” She then continued to tell the officers that she wasn’t feeling well because she had just started her period. When asked if she was refusing the sobriety test, she said “Honestly, I’m too messed up and too in pain to do any test right now.”
The woman told officers that she had four shots of rum around 6 p.m. before going to the concert. After the show, she went to Chipotle and had a burrito and two more shots. She said that she did not remember leaving Chipotle.
She said, “Look officer, I know I shouldn’t have drove home, but I didn’t have money for a cab; and I don’t trust anybody in my condition to drive me home, so I just decided to drive.”
She did not remember passing out in the intersection or why her dress was up and her underwear pulled down. The officer asked her if she thought she did not remember because she drank too much. The woman said, “Well yeah officer, isn’t that obvious?”The woman was taken to the University of Arizona Police Department station where she was given a breathalyzer. Her blood alcohol content was .188 and .171.
The woman was cited for DUI-Impaired to the slightest degree, DUI-BAC greater than .08, Extreme DUI-BAC greater than .15, minor under 21 operating a vehicle with liquor in the body, and stopping prohibited-obstructing traffic. She was then released.
Now this is my kind of women…..lol “so what’s the problem officer”……honestly I’m dieing to know the rest of the story I mean who’s this “clint” was he there and bailed when his wanton advances were declined…..or was the fantasy of him the motivation for this classy young lady to decide that stopped at a red light was a perfect place for her to take a time out for some “me time” if you know what I mean……
Honestly it reminds me of some thing that happened to me many moons ago and I think this proverb teaches an important lesson so I will share it with you……I to was once awoken by someone knocking on the window of my car while I was stopped at a green light. Luckily for me it was not an officer that woke me, and luckily for them IIRC I had my pants up……this my friends is where the luck runs out….see much like our heroine from the tale above if you had ask me if I did not remember where I was or how I got there because of the alcohol I to would have been forced to reply “ Well yeah officer, isn’t that obvious?” . So I looked around and from the contexted clues I determined I must have been on my way to work…now this is where the lesson comes in if you every find yourself in this predicament JUST CALL IT A DAY AND GO ON HOME going to work is not going to be a happy times for you …..sadly this is not information I had at the time and when I got to work they gave me a good ole fashioned firing…APPARENTLY some one had the crazy notion that just b/c I couldn’t walk straight and smelled like I’d been bathing in Sailor Jerry Navy Rum, I might be intoxicated……So once again much like christ or dart Vader at the end of return of the JedI, Les Singe has sacrificed himself for the good of all you out there…LEARN FROM MY WISDOM AND YOU WILL BECOME MORE POWERFUL THAN YOU CAN POSSIBLE IMAGINE.
Oh and I love how anytime you have a run in with the law they charge you with damn near everything but the Kennedy assassination. I mean they charge her with three different DWIs now don’t get me wrong any time you go out and get wild with ole sailor jerry navy rum to the point where you feel the need to pleasure yourself while stopped at an intersection and you pass out in the process that’s a pretty freakin epic DWI but its still just one DWI……
