This was the Absolut* worst move she could make.
Florida woman France Riney, 60, is facing a DUI charge after she allegedly sat behind the wheel of a parked car and drank vodka while a St. Lucie County Sheriff's deputy tried to question her, TC Palm reports.
The deputy responded to a call about a woman who “appeared out of it” in a parked vehicle at the American Legion at around 5:40 p.m. on Nov 16. According to an affidavit, Riney was in the driver’s seat with the keys in the ignition, but the car wasn’t running.
When the deputy asked Riney for her license, she allegedly handed him a bag of chips, then a bottle of water. When the deputy informed her the item in her hand was not her license, she allegedly picked up a bottle of vodka and took a swig.
Despite the fact that she was not actually driving, Riney, whose blood alcohol content measured at more than twice the legal limit, was charged with a driving under the influence.
Riney, however, is far from being the only alleged drunk driver who has made the worst decisions after getting confronted by a cop.
Last year, a Rhode Island woman was pulled over for alleged drunk driving and told the arresting officer that, “I just want to cuddle.” She allegedly added that she didn’t drink and drive “often” or she would be better at it.
That same year, a teacher in Florida allegedly drunkenly crashed her van into a pickup truck, then offered to perform oral sex on a cop.
And in 2012, a Delaware driver tried to blame a car accident on an “elephant” he said ran into the road. Police, who apparently didn't buy the big gray excuse, charged him with his 7th DUI.
DISCLAIMER We have no idea what the vodka brand in question was.
