Occurred on 10/27 at 1:15 AM – Sheafe St.

Officers responded to a radio call for a report of a vehicle playing excessively loud music in a parking lot on Sheafe St. They observed the vehicle parked in the Central Bank parking lot, in a manner not consistent with the designated marked lanes in the lot, but rather parked across several of the marked lines. The engine was running and excessively loud music was coming from inside the vehicle. The interior light of the vehicle was on and a person was sitting in the driver’s seat and appeared to be asleep.

After several knocks by the officers on the window the operator awoke. She was asked what she was doing at this location and she said she was waiting for a guy. She could not provide a name or apartment number for her friend.

Officers detected a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage emanating from her breath and her speech was slurred as she spoke. She was asked to exit her vehicle, and was observed to be unsteady on her feet, and her eyes were glassy and bloodshot. After further investigation, the opinion was formed that the driver was Operating Under the Influence, and was placed under arrest
