On December 17, 2022, at approximately 0114 hours, I TFC. Stephens was patrolling in Milledgeville, GA, when I was dispatched to a 1 vehicle crash on North Columbia Street near its Intersection with Melody Way. After arriving on scene of the crash I was given the license of the driver and was told by Milledgeville Police Officers that the driver involved in the cash was possible intoxicated or otherwise impaired. I was told that the driver slurred her words, talked slow, and that the odor of alcoholic beverage was coming from her person. I walked over and asked to speak to the driver. The driver then stepped forward and admitted to driving. I visually confirmed that the license belonged to her and identified her as 40-year-old Nakimia Latrell Flournoy.

I asked Mis. Flournoy walk with me to my patrol car. As we walked, I observed that she walked off balance and could not maintain a straight line as she walked with me. In addition, I observed that she did not have on any shoes. I asked if she wanted to put her shoes on due to the cool weather, she stated that she was okay. After arriving at my patrol car, I explained to her that we would be doing Standardized Field Sobriety to make sure she was okay to drive at the time of the crash. Mis Flournoy had no objections, so I medically cleared her and began giving her instructions for the first evaluation, the Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus.

As I stood in front of Mis. Flournoy, I smelled a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage and that her eyes were bloodshot and watery. I confirmed she understood all instructions given and began the evaluation. After the evaluation, I concluded that I observed all 6 possible clues during the evaluation. I began giving Mis. Flournoy the instructions for the second evaluation, the Walk and Turn. After confirming she understood all my instructions, we began the evaluation. After the evaluation, I concluded that I observed 6 of the possible 8 clues during the evaluation.

I gave Mis. Flournoy the instructions for the third evaluation, the One Leg Stand. I confirmed she understood all instructions given and began the evaluation. During the evaluations I observed Mis. Flournoy was so off balance that she almost fell backwards. After the evaluation, I concluded that I observed all 4 of the possible clues. I asked Mis. Flournoy to submit to a preliminary breath test on the Alco-Sensor FST, but Mis Flournoy refused.

Due to the totality of the circumstances, I determined that Mis Flournoy was under the influence of alcohol to the extent that she was less safe to drive. I placed Mis. Flournoy under arrest for DUI, in addition to being charged with failure to maintain lane and an open container. I read Mis. Flournoy the Georgia Implied Consent Notice for suspects the age of 21 and older from the green DPS card dated May 21, 2019. I asked Mis. Flournoy for a blood alcohol test, and Mis. Flournoy did not consent to the blood alcohol test.

I put Mis. Flournoy in my patrol car and transported her to the Baldwin County Jail. After arrived at the Baldwin County Jail, I issued Mis. Flournoy a DDS 1205 form for her refusal of the state administered chemical test and released Mis. Flournoy into the custody of the Baldwin County Jail Staff. Mis. Flournoy’s vehicle and all property inside was turned over to Pittman’s Towing.
