A woman driving through parking lots in Holmes Beach at about 1:30 a.m. Jan. 27 was arrested for driving under the influence.

Tracy Moore, 47, of Bradenton, was arrested after she was pulled over in the 4500 block of Gulf Drive.

HBPD Officer Adam Desantis reported observing Moore’s vehicle without taillights illuminated and driving in the wrong direction in the 5300 block of Marina Drive before crossing Gulf Drive and stopping in the southbound lane.

Desantis noted the scent of air freshener coming from the vehicle after Moore rolled the window down to speak to him.

Moore told Desantis she’d come from D.Coy Ducks Tavern, where she had consumed a beer and shots, according to the police report.

Field-sobriety tests were stopped when Moore almost fell, and she was transported to the police station. There, she provided breath samples, measuring 0.169 and 0.182 blood-alcohol content. The legal limit is 0.08.

Her vehicle was towed.

Moore posted a $500 bond and was released.

The state attorney filed a formal DUI charge against her Feb. 7 in the 12th Circuit Court.

Her arraignment is set for 8:25 a.m. Monday, Feb. 26, at the Manatee County Judicial Center, 1051 Manatee Ave. W., Bradenton.
