When the deputy approached the car, an aggressive dog led the deputy to ask the female to step outside of the vehicle. The woman, who the deputy thought may be under the influence of alcohol, admitted to having a shot of vodka at 8 a.m. and taking a muscle relaxant. When the deputy asked the woman to perform field sobriety tests, she said she couldn’t because of medical issues. When the deputy asked the female to take a Breathalyzer test, she began complaining about being lightheaded.
