DELRAY BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — Delray Beach resident Tricia Naughton refused to submit to a breathalyzer test after she was stopped for DUI on Swinton Avenue. Multiple witnesses tried to stop Naughton — then flagged down police — when she was apparently driving the wrong way late Wednesday night.

According to a police report obtained by BocaNewsNow.com, Naughton, 50, had problems turning off her car and giving police the documents they requested. She allegedly provided an officer with a “receipt” instead of her ”registration.”

Wrote an investigating officer about the traffic stop which started 11 p.m.Wednesday: “I asked her where she was coming from tonight and she answered Dada (52 N Swinton Avenue). I asked her where she was going to and she stated home and proceeded to share her home address. I explained to her that she was driving the wrong way and she stated that she was stopped because people were attempting to get her attention…I then requested for her to step out of her vehicle. It should be noted that while stepping out of the vehicle she stumbled. It should also be noted that she was wearing pump style high heels.”

Naughton, according to the report, had issues completing several field sobriety tests. She demanded a lawyer and refused to submit to a blood or breath alcohol test. In Florida, that almost always results in a license suspension for a year.

Tricia Naughton was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail Tuesday morning at 4:51 a.m. and later released on her own recognizance. She lists the 100 block of Via D’Este in Delray Beach as her home address. A court date is pending.
