When a woman was arrested for allegations that she was driving under the influence of alcohol, the authorities reportedly discovered many vodka bottles stored inside her bra.
In the evening on March 15, the Lady Lake Police Department was informed that the staff at a McDonald’s in the city needed assistance with an unruly customer. The caller reported a vehicle in the drive-thru that was allegedly being operated in a way causing the assertion that the driver was intoxicated.
When police arrived, they spotted a woman sitting inside a vehicle matching the description of the one reported.
The driver was identified as 31-year-old Brandi Stanley.
The officer speaking with Stanley reported that a strong smell of alcohol was detected. The woman allegedly displayed several physical indications that she might be under the influence.
Though Stanley told the officer she hadn’t been drinking, she was asked to get out of her car and informed that she was being detained for drunk driving.
When Stanley was read her rights and asked to take a roadside sobriety test, the woman refused to comply with any requests and repeatedly asked for her lawyer.
Stanley was taken to the county jail, and during the transport, she allegedly told the officer she wasn’t on the road with the car, and she requested they turn their heads and allow her to return home.
After they arrived at the county jail, the authorities reportedly discovered Stanley had 7 mini bottles from an 8 pack of vodka stashed inside her bra.
Stanley was asked to comply with testing to determine her BAC, but she would not consent to the procedure.
The woman also reportedly would not sign any documents or citations regarding the incident.
She was given two tickets for misdemeanor DUI’s.
Stanley was held until the following day when she paid a $2,000 bond.
