While tending to another individual, officers were also speaking to a second female individual. The second individual continuously asked officers if she could leave the area. 

 

Officers immediately noticed a strong odor of alcohol coming from the female operator of the vehicle. The operator was asked to step out of the vehicle. Officers asked the operator some questions, and the operator stated that she had a drink earlier and did not have her driver's license as it was at home. 

Officers asked if she was willing to complete a Standard Field Sobriety Test before they call a relative to pick her up.

The operator agreed and handed items to the officer to hold while she completed the sobriety test. The receiving officer immediately noticed a few suspicious items including a clear Ziploc bag containing a crystal-like substance as well as a pack of Zig-Zag rolling papers.
