Wheeler said she had one shot earlier, but her pupils were constricted, and she was unsteady on her feet and swayed as she stood. She consented to sobriety tests wish she performed poorly on. After running her information through the computer system, it was discovered her driver’s license had been revoked and she had a prior DUI conviction in 2021. A family member told police that Wheeler was at his house earlier and was acting erratic and abnormal. He could smell alcohol on her breath before getting into her vehicle and driving off. Wheeler admitted to snorting a white powdery substance earlier in the night but stated she didn’t know what the substance was.
