On March 4th, officers responded to a call on Sweetbriar Avenue after two witnesses observed a vehicle with a flat tire swerving and almost hitting a pedestrian.

Officers were able to eventually wake her up and at that point noticed the odor of alcohol on her breath. She also became very uncooperative. Officers asked Desiree to complete the standard field sobriety tests, and she refused.
