BOCA RATON, FL ( (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — A Boynton Beach woman is facing a DUI charge after allegedly crashing into a Boca Raton Police car stopped at a traffic light.

Neimaria Rodrigues of Boynton Beach, according to a police report, crashed into the unmarked car in the area of 200 North Dixie Highway around 9:40 p.m. Saturday night. The just-released arrest report says Rodrigues was driving a white Ford Explorer with a Massachusetts tag.

“I observed in open view two empty cans of Truly Hard Seltzer, an alcoholic beverage in the open driver’s side door pocket,” wrote the officer called to the scene to investigate the crash. “There also was a case of Truly that randomly found its way under the Ford with no one taking ownership of it. (A crime scene technician) collected the case of Truly and put it into evidence.”

Rodriguez, according to the investigative report, was “coming from an unknown pizza restaurant in Pompano Beach or Boca Raton… She was coming southbound on North Dixie Highway approaching the intersection of NW 2nd Street when she saw the (unmarked police car) stopped in front of her with a green traffic signal. She stated she tried to stop by pressing on the brake, however, she was unable to stop in time and crashed into the back of the unmarked police car. It should be noted while speaking with Rodrigues, her eyes were extremely bloodshot and glazed. I also could smell an odor of alcoholic beverage emanating from her breath…”

Police say Rodriguez had problems completing multiple field sobriety tests, then claimed she couldn’t understand “implied consent” and ultimately refused to provide a breath sample.

Neimaria Rodrigues, 36, of Stonehenge Circle in Boynton Beach was jailed for “Driving Under The Influence — DUI Damage To Property.” She was booked into jail at 3:40 a.m. Saturday and released on her own recognizance just after 7 a.m. A court date is pending.
