Officer’s Narrative:
[Please note: The following is a direct transcription from the officer’s narrative report. We do not fix any spelling or grammatical errors. Any changes made by our staff are placed inside brackets. Some errors may exist.]

On 09/04/2022 I was dispatched to Vista Ct, inside Fairfield Plantation in regards to a possible intoxicated driver.

When I arrived I spoke with SPA security who was out with a white in color Nissan Versa, Ga. Tag number [REDACTED]. I observed an open and empty “Mike’s Hard Lemonade” container beside the car. The driver, identified as April Newman, was sitting in the vehicle and refusing to exit. It was obvious that Newman had vomited on herself as well as outside the car. I smelled the odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from inside the car and emitting from Newman’s breath as she spoke to me. Newman admitted to consuming alcohol today.

I observed that Newman’s pants were pulled down to her knee’s while she sat inside the vehicle. Numerous verbal attempts were made to get her to pull her pants up, which she refused. Newman was assisted out of the car and her pants were pulled up with the assistance of SPA. Newman was then brought in front of my patrol vehicle in an attempt to conduct SFST. Newman could hardly walk and kept attemting to fall down. Newman stated she would not take the SFST evaluations to determine if she was under the influence and safe to operate a motor vehicle.

I then read Newman the Georgia Implied Consent Notice and requested the State administered test of her blood for the purposes of determining if she was under the influence of alcohol. Newman refused the State administered test of her blood. I then placed Newman under arrest and placed her into the back of my patrol car where she was seat belted in for her safety. The vehicle was turned over to a friend after I left the scene. Newman was transported to the Carroll County Jail without incident and turned over to the jail staff to be booked in.

April Newman was charged with the following: DUI-Alcohol (Refusal) (Misdemeanor) (Citation # 928004094).
