Patricia Ebel, 49, was reportedly caught driving drunk after she drove her BMW into another vehicle stopped at an intersection in Naples, Florida, with her 10-year-old grandson in the back seat.
Ebel was wearing a bikini at the time of her arrest because she and her grandson had been swimming that day. The driver of the car Ebel hit was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries, and her grandson escaped any injuries, although Ebel’s BMW was badly damaged.
According to an arrest report, deputies said Ebel smelled of alcohol and she failed field sobriety tests. She’s currently facing DUI charges, including driving with a 15-or-greater blood alcohol content with a minor in the car. Ebel’s arrest was caught on camera by WINK News reporters.
Ebel was later released from custody after she posted $3,000 bail, the sheriff’s office said.
