BOCA RATON, FL ( (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — A Boca Raton woman was “crying,” “unkempt,” and “professing her love for people not on the scene” when she was stopped by PBSO for DUI in Boynton Beach.

Amber Pyborn, according to police, was driving without a tire which created sparks as she traveled past a PBSO Deputy near Jog and Boynton Beach Blvd. That Deputy stopped her and — according to language used in the police report — seemed surprised by what he encountered.

This is the report:

“On 7-17-21 at approximately 2355 Hours I was at the intersection of Boynton Beach Blvd and Jog Road attempting to travel Northbound on Jog. As my light turned green and attempted to travel Northbound, I observed a Black Nissan Sentra bearing Florida Tag [redacted] approaching the Intersection Westbound. As I proceeded to go North the Sentra also went Northbound when I observed sparks coming from drivers front rim.

Since I could clearly see the vehicle was missing a drivers side front tire, I slowed down so it would not slide into me. I then activated my emergency lights and siren in an attempt to stop the vehicle and as it pulled into the Fountains Plaza.

The Sentra almost struck the center median that divides traffic in the entrance. I then made contact with the driver who was drinking from a bottle of water. I knocked on the window. As (the driver) opened the drivers side door and made contact with the driver she was on the phone facetime call with her Mom. She then handed me her license in the name of Amber Christine Ryborn. As she spoke to her mom I could clearly hear her talking to her mom in a slurred speech voice. I then asked her for her vehicle’s registration and Insurance and she could not find it. Based-on my observations of the driver, I requested (a DUI investigator) to my location.

OBSERVATION OF DRIVER: I observed the driver to be occupying the front driver seat with her keys in her hand. I asked the defendant if she knew why she was stopped. She began to cry. I asked why her front tire was completely missing and she was driving on a rim. She informed me her low tire pressure light had recently illuminated. I asked the defendant to exit her vehicle. She eventually got out. I observed the defendant to be unsteady on her feet. The defendant had a noticeable orbital sway as she stood. The defendant’s clothing was unkempt and improperly worn, A button on the front of her dress near her midsection area was not fastened. Her hair was in her face. The defendant weaved as she walked from her vechicie to the front of mine. The defendant’s eyes were red, glassy, ​​bloodshot and watery. The defendant’s speech was slow, slurred and mush mouthed. She would ramble about her child and randomly profess her love for persons not on scene.”

Ryborn’s Breath Alcohol was recorded as .191 and .146. The legal limit in Florida is .08. She was jailed and later released on her own recognizance.

A court date is pending for Pyborn who lives in the 21000 block of Cypress Road in Boca Raton.
