DEFUNIAK SPRINGS — A woman was arrested after crashing her car through a fence and being found in the driver’s seat with a can of duster and a dog.
A deputy who arrived on scene at Paradise Island Drive saw a fence had been knocked over and a vehicle was in the yard. A deputy approached the woman in the driver’s seat and asked if she was OK and if she needed medical attention. The woman, however, was unconscious and holding a can of compressed air and a dog.
The deputy called paramedics, and the woman woke up and started crying. She told police she wanted to go home.
After paramedics arrived and started tending to the woman, another deputy arrived and tried to talk to the woman. She then became irate and started inhaling the duster. The deputy leaned over and took the can away.
A deputy eventually detained the woman, at which point she started yelling and kicking. She was carried to a patrol car and transported to the Walton County Jail.
The woman would not cooperate with authorities, but instead repeatedly asked, “Is my dog all right?” and “I’m sorry.”
The woman was arrested and charged with DUI with property damage and driving while licensed suspended, second offense.
