August 27, 2012 by UPI - United Press International, Inc.
HOLMES BEACH, Fla., (UPI) — Police in Florida said a woman arrested for driving under the influence told a deputy the arrest is what she gets “for being a bridesmaid.”
The Manatee County Sheriff’s Office said a Holmes Beach police officer Friday pulled over Lesley Falcone, 27, for driving 18 mph over the speed limit and drifting into oncoming traffic, the South Florida Sun Sentinel reported Monday.
The officer called a deputy to administer a sobriety test and Falcone was allegedly “unable to stand in the starting position” for the walk and turn test.
“I’m done and I don’t want to look like a fool,” the woman allegedly told the deputy after attempting the test.
The deputy said Falcone admitted to having several drinks before driving.
“This is what I get for being a bridesmaid,” the report quotes her as saying.
