There’s driving drunk. There’s driving obviously drunk. And then there’s driving around town with Jell-O shooters in your pockets drunk
Cathy Sanchez, 28, was driving on Highway 10 around 2 AM when a cop spotted her vehicle speeding and swerving across the road. Upon pulling over Sanchez’s
Buick LeSabre, a Glyndon Police Department officer detected signs that she was impaired (slurred speech, bloodshot and watery eyes, and an aroma of booze).
Sanchez failed a series of sobriety tests and registered a .136 blood alcohol content during a Breathalyzer test.
“In a search incident to her arrest,” an investigator noted in a probable cause statement,
an officer “located three alcohol Jello-shots in the female’s pockets.”
Sanchez, who had initially given police a fake name, eventually cracked and confessed that she’d been popped five times for drunk driving. When officers checked into that claim, they found three DWIs and a conviction for carrying a concealed weapon. But perhaps worst of all, they discovered that she didn’t have a driver’s license because it had, and I’m quoting here, been deemed to be “inimical to public safety.” Inimical means harmful, for the benefit of anyone who walks around with Jell-O in his pockets.
She’s now facing four new charges including two felonies that each carry a maximum of 7 years in prison. At last word she was drying out in the Clay County Jail with a $20,000 bond.
