DELRAY BEACH, FL ( (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — A woman from Clinton, Connecticut driving a Mercedes, claimed she was lost and needed sleep after witnesses said she drove on the curb on Atlantic Avenue and Lyons Road in West Delray Beach.

When police caught up with her near Lyons Road and Beaujolais Ave, she allegedly handed her mother a bag containing a glass bottle. Now, Deborah Green of both the 15000 block of Lake Wildflower Road in Delray Beach, and James Vincent Drive in Clinton, CT, is facing a DUI charge.

This is the narrative written by the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office deputy who placed Green under arrest:

“At approximately 2106 hours, I responded to the area of Atlantic Ave and Lyons Rd in reference to a complaint of vehicle not maintaining a single lane and hitting curbs. Dispatch updated that the suspect vehicle, a black 2015 Mercedes (Connecticut Tag) traveling southbound on Lyons Rd from Atlantic Ave. I caught up to the vehicle in the area of Lyons Rd and 158th Rd S. There was a long line of vehicles behind the Mercedes which was traveling approximately 10 mph in a 35 mph zone.”

“I got behind the vehicle and activated my emergency lights and sirens to initiate a traffic stop. The vehicle continued south at a low rate of speed and continued to not maintain a single lane, swerving over both solid lines of the traffic lane. I continued to activate my siren in an attempt to stop the vehicle which continued south on Lyons Rd for approximately 1000 feet before stopping just south of Beaujolais Ave.”

”I approached the front driver window and met the driver, later identified by her Connecticut License, as Deborah Green (02-05-62). OBSERVATION OF DRIVER: I spoke to Green who appeared very confused. Green advised she was taking her mother home and was lost. Green argued with her mother who was in the front passenger seat. Green stated she was tired and was not taking any medication. I noticed her front driver wheel was flat and she was driving on the rim. When speaking with Green, I noticed her eyes of her were dilated even when I illuminated her face of her with my flashlight. I requested Green to exit the vehicle while PBCFR came to check her out of her.”

“Green was confused and started looking throughout the front cabin area of ​​the vehicle as if she was looking for something. I noticed that she had a black plastic bag that contained a large glass bottle that she was trying to give to her mother from her. I requested Green multiple times to exit and needed to be assisted out by (another deputy). Green had extremely slow movements when exiting the vehicle and appeared very unbalanced on her feet.”

DRIVER’S STATEMENTS: “Green advised she was driving home and was lost. I asked if she took any medication or if she is diabetic, she advised she didn’t take medication and she wasn’t diabetic. Green stated she didn’t realize her front driver tire was flat and stated she did hit into the curb while driving. Green repeatedly told me she was tired and that she needed to sleep.”

Deborah Green was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail at 1 a.m. Thursday. She was released on her own recognizance at 6:36 a.m. A court date is pending.
