Many people have been caught with their pants down. Many people have been caught drunk, with their pants down. But how many people have been caught drunk driving with their pants down?
Natalie Delgado has.
The 20-year-old Pompano resident was arrested in the early-morning hours Wednesday after being pulled over on Interstate 595 in Davie. According to the police report, Delgado was driving on the wrong side of the road and in the wrong direction. After failing a sobriety test, the woman was charged with DUI.
Delgado was freeballing. Or whatever the female version of freeballing is.
The trooper claimed Delgado jumped out of the car as he was approaching her window.
Delgado claimed she was on her way home from work. She attested to working as a bartender but denied having any alcohol in her system.
"The court's very concerned, ma'am. You're out of control," said Judge John Hurley when she appeared in court.
Delgado's bond was set at $25,000.
