Officer McDaniel reported, “While speaking to Ashley, she stated that “I haven’t drunk nothing all night”. [I] then asked her why someone may have called and provided the BOLO on her vehicle. She believed that her ex-boyfriend had possibly called 911 that night because he “gets mad at her”. While speaking to Ashley, [I] detected that her speech seemed slurred. As she exited the vehicle, [I] saw that she was unsteady on her feet. Now that she was standing out in the open air, [I] could also see the strong odor of alcoholic beverages coming from her breath.” During field sobriety testing, Ashley showed several signs of impairment and a BAC of .220 on a PBT. Ashley was placed under arrest and agreed to the state test. Ashley was transported to the Whitfield County Jail, where she showed a BAC of .202.
