MELBOURNE, Florida – An Indian Harbour Beach Police officer was filling the gas tank to his patrol cruisers when a woman crashed into a tree on Yacht Club Blvd. near South Patrick Drive in Brevard County.
The officer looked up and saw a red Honda SUV and a woman screaming. Police found 38-year-old Lindsay Marie Toor behind the wheel.
“I asked her if she needed an ambulance and she refused stating that she is not hurt, just upset,” the officer said.
As Toor exited the vehicle, she began to sway. The officer noticed glassy eyes as well as the odor of alcoholic beverages emitting from her breath.
While the officer assessed the damage, Toor was unable to stand steady. She was unable to provide a story that made any sense as to where she was coming from and where she was going.
When the officer told her he suspected alcohol was involved due to his observations, she said: “I didn’t drink enough for you to be able to smell it!”
Toor refused to perform any field sobriety tests and demanded to talk to a lawyer.
The officer placed Toor under arrest for DUI, but she resisted. “She grabbed my wrist with her right hand and squeezed very tightly. I ordered her to let go and she did not comply until another officer physically restrained her free hand,” the officer said.
After being medically cleared from the hospital, Toor was transported to the Brevard County Jail Complex where she was charged with Battery on a Law Enforcement Officer, Resisting Arrest, DUI with Property Damage, and DUI.
DISCLAIMER: Arrests and mugshots were made public by complaint affidavits, arrest affidavits, and police reports. All persons arrested are innocent until proven guilty.
