[Get comfortable — this is a long one. The original video is well over three hours.]
On December 9, 2017 at 2:56 a.m., Officer Gary Koon of the Bainbridge Island Police Department stopped a red Mazda on suspicion of DUI after observing the vehicle drift onto and over both the white fog line and center yellow line several times.
The driver was a young woman named Veronica, and upon contact with her Officer Koon smelled the aroma of an alcoholic beverage. Veronica admitted to drinking wine earlier in the night, and Officer Koon requested that she perform voluntary Standardized Field Sobriety Tests. While making more excuses than you’ve ever heard in your life, Veronica simultaneously performed poorly on all three tests.
Based on her driving over the lane lines, the odor of an alcoholic beverage, her admission to drinking, and her poor performance on the Standardized Field Sobriety Tests, Officer Koon placed Veronica under arrest for DUI — but not before she managed to call her parents to join her on scene.
Veronica subsequently blew a 0.079 and 0.081 BAC on BiPD’s Datamaster breathalyzer. She was booked into the Kitsap County Jail, with no bail set due to her having a previous DUI arrest within the past ten years.
On December 18, 2018, Veronica was adjudged guilty of RCW 46.61.502 Driving Under the Influence. She was sentenced to 364 days in jail, with 360 days suspended for five years, and four days to serve. Subsequent her jail sentence Veronica was required to spend 180 days on electronic monitoring, pay a long list of fees and fines, and take various classes and evaluations. Her arrest report, DUI packet, and court sentencing documentation have been posted on Patreon.
