BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — A Boca Raton woman told police she had just one glass of wine yet allegedly provided breath alcohol samples of .225 and .219 when she was stopped by Delray Beach Police after crashing into another car. The legal limit in Florida is .08.

Jill Factor of the 700 block of Spanish River Blvd. in Boca Raton was “moody,” “crying” and “emotional” as she allegedly told police that she “F’d up.”

According to a police report reviewed by BocaNewsNow.com, Factor was driving the 400 block of SW 27th Avenue in Delray Beach when a witness said she crashed her white 2019 Mercedes CLA250 into a 2011 white Infiniti parked on the road.

From the report, written by an investigator officer: “I smelled an odor of an unknown alcoholic beverage coming from Factor. Factor was unsteady and stumbling while she was walking. Factor swayed while standing still. Factor was fidgeting and blinking her eyes at a rapid pace. Factor’s eyelids fluttered and her eyes had a glassy appearance. Factor’s speech was slurred and she spoke rapidly. Factor had mood swings from being cooperative to crying and emotional.”

Also from the report, “Post Miranda, Factor stated she was at a friend’s residence but she did not know what neighborhood the friend resided in. Factor stated she was on her way home in Boca Raton, FL. when the crash occurred. Factor did not know what neighborhood she was currently in and stated she had no reason to be in this neighborhood. Factor stated she did not know how the crash occurred and denied being on her cell phone, operating her radio or GPS at the time of the crash, Factor stated she was following her GPS to go home but did not know how she ended up on SW 27th Ave. Factor stated she consumed one glass of wine 1.5 hours prior to driving. Factor denied consuming any prescription medications or using any illegal drugs including marijuana. Factor denied having any medical conditions that would affect her ability to operate a motor vehicle. After arrest, Factor stated she shouldn’t have gone to her friend’s residence of her and she “f’d up.”

According to police, field sobriety tests given to Factor did not go well. Again, from the report:

“Factor was unable to maintain her balance after being placed in the instructional phase position. Factor used her arms for balance. Factor did not touch heel to toe on several steps. Factor did not count as instructed. Factor walked too many steps on each series of steps. Factor did not turn around as instructed. Factor stepped off the line several times to maintain her balance.”

Individual tests, from police:

ONE LEG STAND: Factor swayed while standing still. Factor used her arms for balance. Factor put her foot down on the ground several times. Factor did not count as instructed. Factor did not raise her foot off the ground straight out as instructed. Factor hopped up and down to maintain her balance.

FINGER TO NOSE: Factor swayed while standing still. Factor did not keep her head tilted back for the entire exercise. Factor missed the tip of her nose of several attempts. Factor used her pad of her finger instead of her tip of her finger. Factor raised her left hand from her when I instructed her to use her right finger from her.

ROMBERG ALPHABET: Factor swayed while standing still. Factor recited rapidly instead of the slow manner I instructed her. Factor recited the alphabet correctly up to the letter “L” but she recited several letters afterward. Factor attempted several times to complete the entire alphabet but stopped stating she was “drawing a blank”.

Factor was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail at 1:42 a.m. Friday. She was released on her own recognizance at 6:22 a.m. A court date is pending.
