A woman was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol on Friday evening.
Collier County Sheriff’s Office arrested Christina Satin, 51-years-old, after recording a blood alcohol content of 0.164 and 0.156, which exceeds the legal limit of 0.08.
A caller called CCSO after Satin had been reported drinking and was seen attempting to enter cars that were not hers. When an officer arrived, he spoke with Satin, recommending a cab instead of having her drive home in her white Corvette impaired.
While they spoke, the officer noticed an overwhelming smell of alcohol permeating from her breath. Satin soon agreed to take a taxi cab home, but became verbally abusive as she and an officer awaited its arrival.
“You don’t know how to do your [expletive] job,” Satin said, according to the press release. “My husband works for the sheriff’s office. Why don’t you [expletive] call him.”
Growing impatient, Satin soon decided she was safe to drive home. She grabbed her Corvette keys from her purse and proceeded to jog to her vehicle parked nearby. An officer stopped her before she could get into her vehicle.
Satin agreed to have an ambulance check her out as they waited for the taxi cab to arrive. She spoke with EMS when it arrived on the scene, then refused medical service.
Meanwhile, a second officer obtained a sworn trespass statement from the Gulf Coast Inn. When the officer informed Satin of the statement, she told the officer she didn’t want to come back anyway, per the press release, but refused to sign the document.
The taxi cab arrived and the officer let Satin into the vehicle. Soon afterward, as an officer was completing his notes about the incident with Satin, he noticed the Corvette tail lights turn on and heard the sound of its engine start.
As he followed the vehicle, he noted it was swerving southbound on 9th Street North, when at Golden Gate Parkway, she stopped for a red light straddling between two lanes.
Before she was taken to the station where she blew above the legal driving limit, Satin was asked to perform field sobriety tests, which she did not pass.
