Holmes Beach police arrested a Sarasota woman for driving under the influence of alcohol — at about twice the legal limit.

Shari Rosploch, 44, was arrested at 1:39 a.m. Jan. 6 after an officer conducting radar in the 5200 block of Gulf Drive noticed her Jeep cross the center yellow lines.

HBPD Officer Alan Bores followed the Jeep as it traveled south on Gulf Drive, observing the vehicle’s tires swerve across the center as it approached the S-curve south of Manatee Avenue. The officer stopped the vehicle in the 3300 block of Gulf Drive.

Rosploch handed Bores an expired registration and told him she was coming from a friend’s house. She also told the officer she’d consumed two beers and taken prescription medication, Xanax and Adderall, earlier in the day, according to a police report.

Rosploch agreed to perform a field-sobriety test, but it was discontinued after she lost her balance and fell.

Officers found a handgun in the glove compartment and determined she had a permit to carry it, but took the weapon for safekeeping.

Rosploch was transported to the Manatee County jail, where she provided breath samples measuring 0.196 and 0.188 blood-alcohol content. The legal BAC is 0.08.

The woman also was ticketed for failure to drive in a single lane and display vehicle registration.

She was booked at the Manatee County jail and released on a $500 bond, pending an 8:30 a.m. Wednesday, Feb. 7, arraignment at the Manatee County Judicial Center, 1051 Manatee Ave. W., Bradenton.
