BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — A nurse at a Boca Raton addiction rehabilitation facility is facing a DUI charge after police say she crashed into a parked car. The crash occurred October 21st, 2022. The police report was just released.

Angela Earle crashed into the car, according to police, in the area of 550 NE Mizner Boulevard just after 10 p.m. Here is how investigators documented the incident in the police report obtained by BocaNewsNow.com.

Earle had crashed into a vehicle that was parked in front of a residence off the main roadway. The impact of the crash was severe enough to cause injury to the driver of the other vehicle. The other driver advised that he had a left shoulder injury. Officer Coccia advised that Earle had slurred speech, glassy eyes, stumbled when she got out of the vehicle and did not know where she was at.

Officer Coccia advised that Earle stated she was coming from Mizner Boulevard and was now on Yamato Road heading home. Earle had stated to Officer Coccia that she had crashed into the back of a vehicle though she did not know how the crash had occurred. Earle asked Officer Coccia if she would be going to jail. Officer Coccia asked Earle why she would ask that, to which Earle replied that she did not know.

When Earle was asked to provide her driver’s license, registration, and insurance information, she had a delayed response and had to be asked multiple times. Since Earle was the driver involved in a crash and was showing signs of impairment, I determined that I would be conducting a DUI investigation. I made contact with Earle and observed that Earle’s eyes were red and glassy.

I smelled a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from Earle’s person. I had Earle walk to the front of my vehicle and when she did, it appeared that her balance was impaired. Earle was informed that the crash investigation portion was concluded and that I would now be conducting a DUI investigation. I read Earle her constitutional rights from a department-issued card.

Earle, according to police, refused to provide a breath or blood sample for testing. She also refused to take part in field sobriety tests. She did, however, demand a lawyer.

Earle lives in the 11600 block of NW 12th Street in Coral Springs. She works for FHE Health on Federal Highway in Boca Raton. The facility’s website says that it treats mental health and addiction issues. Earle was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail on a charge of “driving under the influence — alcohol or drugs.” She was later released on her own recognizance.
