ORLANDO, FLORIDA — From the report of officer Andrew Hall, lightly edited for clarity and brevity:
On December 19, 2020 at approximately 2:30 am, Officer Andrew Hall with the Orlando Police Department responded to the intersection of East Colonial Drive and North Magnolia Ave, at the request of a fellow officer regarding a possible intoxicated driver.
“Upon arrival I made contact with Officer Funchess, who advised that he had observed a dark colored vehicle traveling northbound on North Orange Avenue, a southbound-only one-way street. Officer Funchess conducted a traffic stop on the vehicle and made contact with its sole occupant. I advised her who I was and what I was about to request. She had bloodshot and glassy eyes and I could smell the obvious odor of alcohol emanating from her person, becoming stronger as she spoke / slurred.
During HGN, she had a lack of smooth pursuit, distinct and sustained nystagmus at maximum deviation, and the onset of nystagmus prior to a 45-degree angle in both eyes. She also had a distinct orbital sway.
Walk and Turn, One Leg Stand, and Modified Romberg Balance tests [see video].
Post-Miranda I asked her what had happened tonight and she advised she did not know why she was speaking with law enforcement. I then explained to her the reasoning for the stop again and asked her how many drinks she had this evening. She advised “two or three drinks.” I asked her what kind of drinks she had and she advised “vodka and RedBull”. I asked her what time it was and she advised it was “twelve”; the time was 0245 hours. Thayer advised she ate food at 2000 hours. I asked her on a scale of one to ten how drunk she was. She replied a “four.”
At the Orange County DUI center, she refused to provide a breath sample. She was then transported to the Orange County Jail for further processing.”
