Sheriff’s report: Driver so unstable deputies waited to perform field sobriety tests

A 30-year-old South Jordan woman was arrested on suspicion of DUI and having an open container of alcohol in her vehicle after deputies responded to a crash on Kilby Road, according to a report from the Summit County Sheriff’s Office.

When deputies arrived, she was being treated by medical personnel. She refused to go to the hospital, according to the report.

Deputies indicated the woman showed signs of intoxication and that they did not initially perform field sobriety tests on site because of traffic conditions on the road and the driver’s difficulty in maintaining balance.

A clear water bottle lay in plain sight in the vehicle and contained alcohol, according to the report.

Deputies transported the driver to the Summit County Jail to perform the field sobriety tests, but she refused. She was then booked into jail.
