DELRAY BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2023 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — A Delray Beach woman is facing a DUI charge after she allegedly told a police dispatcher that she left the area of an alleged domestic dispute in Uber because she had been drinking, but returned to the scene and left in her own car. She was later stopped in the area of 3911 West Atlantic Avenue in Delray Beach.

The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office says Marissa Kohl of Stirling Bridge Blvd. North in Delray Beach eventually had issues completing a field sobriety test, then provided breath samples that registered .253 and .244. The legal limit in Florida is .08.

Wrote an arresting officer: “When I originally made contact with Kohl at the address listed above she had glossy eyes and would slur her speech while she was talking to me. Kohl had the odor of an unknown alcoholic beverage coming from her breath. During the traffic stop approximately an hour later I observed the same indicators from Kohl, her eyes were still glossy, she was slurring her speech and the odor of an alcoholic beverage was still present. While speaking with Kohl at the rear of her vehicle she was unsteady on her feet and tried to lean against her car for balance.”

Kohl was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail on Tuesday evening, then released Wednesday on her own recognizance. A court date is pending.
