52-year-old Whitney Malone was involved in a three-vehicle accident on Greenwood Avenue on February 20th. Officers arrived and observed two of the motor vehicles were unoccupied and parked on the side of the road. Then, Malone, who was in the driver’s seat of the third vehicle, showed multiple signs of impairment as she admitted to being drunk. Malone admitted she should not have been driving. Medics had to help her out of her car and into the ambulance. Officers located a half-empty bottle of Vodka in her purse next to where she was sitting. Officers followed the medics to the hospital when Malone tried to get out of the ambulance while it was still moving. Under Miranda, at the hospital, she told officers she drove to the liquor store that morning and had been drinking since then. Malone then said she was returning to the store when the collision occurred. Malone provided a blood sample that resulted in 0.449 BAC%, and she was taken into custody for driving under the influence.
