DELRAY BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — A Delray Beach woman is facing a DUI charge after police say she fell asleep in the car she was driving near Atlantic and I-95. While she fell asleep with her foot on the brake, according to police, the car started to move when they banged on the roof and door to get her to wake up. That led to some very tense seconds as officers fear a crash.
From the police report in the arrest of Lola Grosjean:
“On 11/07/21 at 0126hrs I observed a silver 2014 Volkswagen Tiguan stopped in the inside westbound travel lane of W. Atlantic Ave. The Volkswagen was stopped at the interchange with I-95 Southbound Exit Ramp. Several other vehicles honked their horns in an attempt to signal the Volkswagen the traffic signal was green. Once traffic drove around the Volkswagen, I placed my marked DBPD parked patrol vehicle behind the Volkswagen and approached the white female driver. The white female driver appeared to be asleep with her head in her hand.
The white female driver had her right foot on the brake pedal with her left knee against the driver’s window. The white female driver was the only person inside the Volkswagen and the engine was running with the vehicle key in ignition. The Volkswagen was in the drive gear and the doors were locked. Once Ofc. Penagos DBPD #1190 arrived on scene, I positioned my patrol vehicle with my front-end push bar facing the Volkswagen to prevent the vehicle from rolling away. I had to knock on the windows, door panels and the roof before the white female driver woke up. When she woke up, the Volkswagen traveled forward a few feet and officers had to scream stop to the white female driver to stop moving. I met with the white female driver and identified her by her FL DL as Lola Manon Grosiean.”
“I smelled an odor of an unknown alcoholic beverage coming from Grosjean. Grosjean’s eyes were red and had a glassy appearance. Grosjean’s speech was slurred. Grosjean had slow dexterity and appeared to be confused (as to) where she was. Grosjean was unaware (as to) what the time was and what city she was in. Grosjean swayed in a circular motion while standing still. I observed an open White Claw can in the center console and I requested Grosjean hand me the open can. The can was empty and the bottom of the can was cold suggesting the beverage was consumed recently.”
“Grosjean stated she was on her way home when the police arrived. Grosjean stated she was in downtown Delray Beach, FL prior to driving. Grosjean stated she had been driving awhile and left downtown around midnight which was one hour and 26 minutes prior to my encounter. Grosjean stated she consumed two alcoholic seltzer beverages between 2100hrs and 0000hrs. Grosjean stated her friends have told her she is narcoleptic and should seek medical treatment from a doctor.”
Grosjean, according to police, ultimately had issues completing field sobriety tests, then agree to a breath alcohol test. Police say her breath alcohol content was .185 and .179. The legal limit in Florida is .08.
Lola Grosjean was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail early Sunday morning and released four hours later on her own recognizance. A court date is pending.
