FORT PIERCE, Fla. - A booze-smelling Fort Pierce woman was arrested after presenting a DVD when asked for her license and after trying to kiss a deputy, according to a recently released affidavit.
The case of the liquored-up lady began brewing about 12:45 a.m. June 14 as a St. Lucie County Sheriff’s Office deputy stopped a 1997 Pontiac in the 4200 block of South U.S. 1 in Fort Pierce after suspected traffic violations.
The driver, 45-year-old Luonna Goldstein, supplied a DVD when asked for her license.
Goldstein’s slurred speech was “accompanied by the aroma of alcoholic beverages and inability to follow simple instructions.”
A deputy got the keys from the ignition of Goldstein’s vehicle.
Goldstein, apparently not aware that her keys were no longer in the ignition, reportedly said she was leaving while trying to start her vehicle and put it in drive.
She was asked to step out of her car, and when she opened the door it hit the deputy’s leg.
As the deputy tried to ask about her alcohol consumption and/or use of medication, she kept saying, “(Racial epithet) please!”
At one point Goldstein tried to kiss the deputy and at another she tried to give him a hug.
Investigators determined she wasn’t able to participate in field sobriety exercises, arresting her on a DUI charge.
Breath tests measured Goldstein’s blood alcohol content at 0.249 and 0.251 – more than three times the legal limit of 0.08.
Goldstein, of the 5200 block of Palm Drive in Fort Pierce, was taken to the St. Lucie County Jail.
