BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Wednesday night was a very bad night for Julie Lauren Newman. The 35 year old Boca Raton resident didn’t just crash into a marked Boca Raton Police Car, but couldn’t recite the alphabet past the letter “F” when police conducted a field sobriety test.
It was all caught on a police car’s surveillance camera.
Newman admitted to having “three wines” after work at Flannigan’s then getting behind the wheel of her car. All was fine until she drove onto Camino Gardens Blvd. Officers were already there, loading prisoner into the marked Boca Police Car. Flashers were on. A door was open. According to police. Newman drove into the bike lane — where the police car was parked — and managed to sideswipe the police car’s door. 
Newman’s blood alcohol content was tested at .219 and .216 — just under three times the legal limit.
She was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail on a charge of DUI that led to a property damage accident.
She’ll be in court on December 2nd.
