A Palm Bay woman was incoherent as she claimed that she was a stripper and had not taken painkillers for more than 114 years. She also claimed that she could not afford being taken to jail but was arrested regardless.
The 34 year old woman, was found driving erratically on Sunday, October 5, 2014 at 2:40 in the morning. She was traveling on Okeechobee Road in Fort Pierce and nearly collided with a deputy of the St. Lucie County Sherriff’s office while he was stopped for traffic.
A second deputy made her stop her vehicle and noticed that she reeked of alcohol. He asked for her registration and she handed him the title for the vehicle four different times.
A deputy noticed a bottle of prescription painkillers in her purse. Specifically, they were hydrocodone. The woman claimed she had taken the drugs three days prior and later changed her story by stating that she had taken then “a million hours ago.” Taking that statement literally would mean that she hadn’t taken the drugs since around the year 1900, 79 years prior to Woodberry’s birth.
She admitted to having consumed two Bahama wine coolers and agreed to do some field sobriety exercises. One of them was the one legged stand, which she was only able to manage for 15 seconds. She then declared that she was a stripper.
It is unknown whether she truly is a stripper. Strippers tend to have good balance due to their professions and would most likely be able to perform a one legged stand without a problem, even with alcohol in their systems. However, according to the arrest affidavit, shey was unable to manage this feat and failed to keep even one of her legs straight. She relied on her arms to attempt to balance.
Officials also found two empty liquor bottles in her vehicle. They were uncovered beneath the passenger’s seat. She was subsequently charged with driving under the influence and was taken to the St. Lucie County jail. Breathalyzer tests determined that her BAC was 0.194, which is more than double the legal limit of 0.08.
