BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — Visiting Mar-A-Lago isn’t a crime, but telling police in Boca Raton that you just left there on a hunt for “Smart Waters” — and then plan to return once you find them — certainly raises a red flag. Mar-A-Lago is nearly 20 miles away in Palm Beach. That is one of the issues Stephen Warzoah of Greenwich, CT faced as he was stopped in the 3800 block of Federal Highway — in Boca Raton — around 2 a.m. on December 5th.

Warzoah allegedly couldn’t keep his Blue Mercedes under control as headed northbound. When he was stopped by Boca Raton Police, an officer stated that Warzoah told him that he was on the hunt for “Smart Waters,” then would return to Mar-A-Lago at 400 South Ocean Blvd. That address is not Mar-A-Lago, but “The Boca Raton,” formerly known as the Boca Resort. This is how police documented the traffic stop:

“The driver, identified by his CT Drivers License as Stephen Warzoha, repliaed he was coming from Mar-a-Lago at 400 S. Ocean Blvd. He advised he was driving around looking for Smart Waters and then would be heading back to 400 S. Ocean Blvd. While Warzoha spoke, I could notice he had slurred speech and a raspy voice. I then asked Warzoha to step outside of his vehicle to speak with me, and he willingly stepped outside. I asked Warzoha if there was any reason for him to be swerving outside of his lane multiple times, and he replied it was due to his allergies and trying to find a place to get Smart Waters. While speaking up close with Warzoha, I could smell a strong odor of an unknown alcoholic beverage emanating from his breath and person.”

Warzoah, according to the police report reviewed by BocaNewsNow.com, had issues completing several field sobriety tests. He was later transported to a Palm Beach County breath and blood alcohol testing facility where police say he provided samples yielding a .200 and .204 breath alcohol content. The legal limit is .08.

Warzoah of King Street in Greenwich, CT, was charged with “enhanced DUI” and booked into the Palm Beach County Jail. He was later released on his own recognizance pending a court appearance.
