BOCA RATON, FL ( (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — She is 80 years old, has blonde hair, and drives a white Kia Forte. Now, Barbara Schwartz also has a court date, after she allegedly drank wine, consumed Marijuana Gummies, and slammed into a tree in the area of Old Court Road and Palmetto Circle in unincorporated Boca Raton.

According to the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office, Schwartz crashed into the tree around 10:30 Tuesday evening. The report, just processed by the Palm Beach County Clerk’s Office, says that she dressed in a dress when she told a deputy that she had one and a half glasses of wine prior to the crash. She later — according to police — admitted to also consuming Marijuana gummies.

PBSO administered a field sobriety test that Schwartz apparently had trouble completing. She later provided a urine sample that revealed an alcohol content of .034 and .031 — both are under the Florida maximum of .08. Crashing into a tree, admitting to drinking wine, Marijuana gummies, and allegedly failing field sobriety tests, however, are enough to lead to arrest.

Schwartz was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail and charged with DUI and DUI with property damage. She was later released on her own recognizance.
