On August 20, 2022, at approximately 0132 hours, I, Trooper McCrary, was requested to work a crash on Albany Street, near its intersection with K Street, involving a possibly intoxicated driver. When I arrived on scene, I observed that a Ford Taurus struck a parked Ford F150 that was parked on Albany Street. I began speaking with the driver of the Ford Taurus, Christina Herrington.
While speaking with Ms. Herrington, I could smell the strong odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from her breath. Ms. Herrington had bloodshot red and watery eyes. Ms. Herrington had slow, slurred speech and was unsteady on her feet. I asked Ms. Herrington how much she had to drink and she stated that she drank at Moonshiners, which is where she was coming from. I asked Ms. Herrington if she would be willing to perform some field sobriety testing to be sure that she was safe to drive and she agreed.
Ms. Herrington stated that she had an eye diagnosis that prevented me from performing the Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus test.
As a result of the Walk and Turn test, Ms. Herrington displayed 6 out of a possible 8 clues. Ms. Herrington was unable to maintain her balance during the instructional stage, stopped while walking, missed heel to toe, stepped off line, raised her arms for balance, and made an improper turn.
As a result of the One Leg Stand test, Ms. Herrington displayed 2 out of a possible 4 clues. Ms. Herrington swayed front to back and side to side.
During the field sobriety testing, Ms. Herrington stated that she had an unbalanced equilibrium.
Ms. Herrington voluntarily provided me with a sample of her breath via PBT and her results were .165 BrAC.
I placed Ms. Herrington under arrest and read her Georgia’s Implied Consent Notice for Suspects Age 21 or Over for blood and she initially agreed. Ms. Herrington’s vehicle was towed away by Big Bear Towing at the owner’s request. I transported Ms. Herrington to SEGA Health in Brunswick for a blood draw. Once on scene at the hospital, Ms. Herrington stated that she no longer wished to submit to the blood draw.
I transported Ms. Herrington to the Glynn County Detention Center and she was turned over to jail staff for booking. This scene was digitally recorded in patrol vehicle 722. See DPS crash number C000822694 for further information.
