BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — A Boca Raton Police Officer was forced to take evasive action to avoid being slammed by an alleged drunk driver who put her car into reverse in the first moments of a traffic stop on Military Trail.
Violeta Maczynski of Congress Avenue in Boca is now facing a DUI charge — although she refused to take part in a field sobriety test and refused to provide a breath sample.
The following is the police report written by the responding DUI officer, called to the scene after Boca Raton Officer Jimmy Jalil initiated the traffic stop.
POLICE REPORT NARRATIVE
“According to Officer Jalil, he was conducting routine patrol northbound on N Military Trail approaching the intersection of Banyan Trail and N Military Trail when he observed a white Cadillac bearing Florida tag ELVIl1 heading southbound on N Military Trail make a U-turn in front of him and head northbound on N Military Trail. The Cadillac continued northbound in the outside travel lane while swerving into the middle lane and back to the outside travel lane and back. Officer Jalil had reasonable suspicion to believe the driver of the Cadillac was sick, injured, or impaired. Officer Jalil activated his emergency equipment and stopped the Cadillac at 4000 N Military Trail. Once the Cadillac came to stop in the right hand turn lane, the reverse lights illuminated and the Cadillac began backing up towards Officer Jalil’s vehicle forcing Officer Jalil to take evasive action and back up as well.
As the Cadillac continued to back up towards Officer Jalil vehicle he continued to reverse in his patrol vehicle until the Cadillac eventually stopped reversing and came to a stop. Officer Jalil than walked up and spoke to the driver, later identified by her Florida driver license as Violeta Maczynski. While speaking with her, he could see her eyes were glassy and bloodshot and he could smell an odor of an alcoholic beverage emanating from her breath.
Officer Jalil cited Maczynski for failing to maintain a single lane per F.S.S. 316.089. I then walked up to the Cadillac and spoke with the driver, Violeta Maczynski who was still behind the wheel of the running Cadillac and was the sole occupant. I asked Maczynski if she knew why she was stopped and she said no. I explained to her why she was stopped. While I spoke with Maczynski, I could see her extremely bloodshot and I could smell a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage emanating from her breath. I asked Maczynski where she was coming from and she eventually told me her ex-husband’s residence somewhere.
I asked Maczynski how much she had to drink tonight and she said nothing. I asked Maczynski to step out of her
vehicle so she could speak with me better because she was speaking softly and mumbled at times while seated. When Maczynski stepped out of her vehicle she had to hold onto the side of the vehicle and use it for support. I advised Maczynski of my observations and to dispel my alarm that she may be impaired, I asked her to complete some roadside exercises. Maczynski refused to participate in roadside exercises.
I advised her of her Taylor warning that if she refused to participate in roadside exercises her refusal to participate can be used against her in a court of law. She kept asking hypothetical questions about what would happen next if she didn’t do roadsides and asking for legal advice about what happens if she doesn’t do the exercises. I again advised her of her Taylor warning and advised her the exercises were her choice and I could not force her to do them. I then again asked her again if she would complete the exercises and she again refused.
Based upon my investigation, I had probable cause to believe Violeta Maczynski did drive or was in actual physical control of a vehicle, while under the influence of alcoholic beverages or chemical substances as set forth in Florida Statute 877.111, or a controlled substance as set forth in Chapter 893 or any combination thereof and was affected to the extent that her normal faculties were impaired, contrary to Florida Statute 316.193(1). At 2310 hours, I placed Violeta Maczynski under arrest for DUI. I transported Maczynski to the Boca Raton Police Department for processing and breath testing.
Officer Careccia conducted the breath testing process. It should be noted when I asked Maczynski for her height and weight, she replied 1.3 5.6 for her weight and I asked her again what she said and again she said 13 5.6 was her weight. I asked Maczynski to provide a sample of her breath and she said no. I read implied consent and at 0006 hours, she again refused to provide a sample of her breath. A refusal affidavit was completed. I also advised her of her constitutional warnings for which she stated that she understood and she refused to speak with me. Maczynski was then transported to the Palm Beach County Jail.”
AFTER THE ARREST
Violeta Maczynski was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail and charged with Driving Under The Influence. She was officially booked at 2:43 AM Wednesday, and released on her own recognizance at 8:44 the same morning. A court date is pending.
