SANTA ROSA BEACH – A woman who made an illegal U-turn at a busy intersection in South Walton was pulled over by the Walton County Sheriff’s Office deputy who was patrolling nearby.

While the deputy watched, the 33-year-old Santa Rosa Beach woman almost swerved off the roadway, narrowly missing a parked car, according to her WCSO arrest report.

He pulled her over and noted that he could smell alcoholic beverages in the car and that her eyes were glazed and her words slurred, the report said.

She refused to submit to field sobriety tests, so was charged with DUI.
