PORT RICHEY — A 33-year-old woman was arrested Monday after she was found slumped over at the steering wheel of her car with a child in the backseat while at a Dunkin' Donuts drive-through.
Keri Camielle Conley of Port Richey faces charges of DUI, child neglect and driving with a suspended or revoked license, according to the Pasco County Sheriff's Office.
The incident occurred about 12:30 p.m. Monday at the Dunkin' Donuts in the 11409 block U.S. 19 in Port Richey, close to the intersection with State Road 52.
Here's what happened, deputies said:
Conley was operating a 2013 Volkswagen Jetta when a witness called the Sheriff's Office and said the woman was foaming at the mouth and appeared under the influence, deputies said.
The responding deputy found Conley slumped over at the wheel, an arrest report says, with the driver's door open and keys in the ignition. An 8-year-old girl was in the backseat.
Conley slurred her speech, was unsteady on her feet and had red, watery eyes, the deputy said. She performed field sobriety exercises poorly, the deputy said, though her breath sample yielded a zero result. The woman said she was taking medication, the deputy said.
She was being held Tuesday without bail.
