We don't support drunk driving or any attempts to get out of an arrest for doing so, but we have give one Florida woman credit for a creative on the spot excuse when she was pulled over last weekend for speeding and swerving through traffic.
According to the police in Jensen Beach, FL, 49 year old Maureen Raymond had a simple explanation for her inability to pass a field sobriety test—her large breasts.
When deputies pulled Raymond over they detected the odor of liquor and noticed her eyes were red and glassy. Before performing a field sobriety test the Florida woman explained the officers "needed to understand that she is big-chested" and "she is not going to balance well". Not surprisingly passing the field sobriety tests proved to be tough for her.
Upon failing to walk in a straight line Raymond began to dance. When she was asked if she would like to try again the woman told the Sheriff's deputy she wouldn't be able to because of her "big boobies." Upon failing to stand on one leg, Raymond attempted to take her clothes off to show the deputy her breasts and prove her claims.
Deputies later found a glass in the back of Raymond's Toyota Camry that they believed contained alcohol. Despite her unique explanation, Maureen Raymond was arrested and charged with driving under the influence and having an open container of alcohol.
It's unknown exactly how drunk Raymond was because she failed to provide a valid breath sample after her arrest. Her breasts are not believed to be at fault.
