DELRAY BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — The designated driver is the person who is NOT supposed to drink, but a police report obtained by BocaNewsNow.com suggests that Navila Khan may have misunderstood her role. The self-proclaimed “designated driver” was charged with DUI on Monday, and later provided breath samples of .140 and .137.
The legal limit in Florida is .08.
She was arrested by the Delray Beach Police Department in the area of West Atlantic Avenue and Congress Avenue.
From Delray Beach Police:
On 10/11/2021 I responded to the area of 2100 W Atlantic Ave in reference to a report of a vehicle
stopped in the middle of the intersection. The caller described the vehicle as an orange or red
passenger car with a sole female occupant moving around the vehicle with the interior light on.
Ofc. Reinhart observed the vehicle traveling westbound as she approached the intersection and
watched it make a sudden turn from the far left lane into a parking lot on the east side of the road.
Ofc. Reinhart stopped the vehicle and observed a white female in the drivers seat. The female
presented her Florida driver license which identified her as Navila Khan. Khan was the sole
occupant of the vehicle. At that time I arrived and made contact with Khan.
Khan exited the vehicle and was unsteady on her feet. Khan stated that she was driving erraticaly
due to losing her phone in the vehicle and trying to locate it. Khan stated that she drove from a
restaurant in Hollywood, Florida where she consumed one margarita. Khan advised that she was
the designated driver and just dropped off her friend in Boca Raton and was headed home. Khan
stated that she dropped her phone while making a u-turn at Atlantic Ave, which indicates that she
passed her home.
Khan stated that she struck the curb when making the u-turn which caused her
to drop her phone. Khan stated that she also had drinks at the Master’s Grill in Boca Raton prior to
her time in Hollywood. Khan then changed her account and stated that she only had iced tea at
Khan was overly talkative and had some difficulty balancing. Khan’s eyes were droopy and there
was an odor of an unknown alcoholic beverage coming from her breath. Based on the
circumstances, I requested that Khan submit to the roadside Standardized Field Sobriety Tasks to
dispell my suspicion that she may be impaired.
Police allege that she had difficult complete many of the requested tasks and later refused to sign a citation. She was eventually charged with DUI and “careless driving.” A court date is pending.
