A witness saw a motorist nearly strike several vehicles and bicyclists in Anna Maria and called 911 — leading to a woman’s arrest for driving while intoxicated.
Barbara Boyd Foulds, 68, of Bradenton, was taken into custody at 6:49 p.m. Nov. 11 at 125 Crescent Drive, where she stopped her vehicle and blocked traffic flow, according to a Manatee County sheriff’s report.
MCSO Deputy Amy Leach responded initially and Deputy Benjamin Quick arrived to conduct a DUI investigation, including a field-sobriety test, which was discontinued after Foulds lost her balance.
An open bottle of chardonnay, more than two-thirds empty, and an unopened bottle of wine allegedly were found in Foulds’ vehicle.
Foulds was transported to the Manatee County jail, where she remained in custody Nov. 8.
Her arraignment is set for 8:30 a.m. Wednesday, Dec. 6, at the Manatee County Judicial Center, 1051 Manatee Ave. W., Bradenton.
