BOCA RATON, FLA. — The DUI arrest report filed by Boca Raton Police stated that a 2012 Mini traveling northbound from N. Military Trail operated by Coral Springs teacher Joanna Sadowski was noticed by Officer Stephen R. Bissoon, 41, of Boca Raton, Fla. on Aug. 2, 2014 at 4:30 am.
“As the vehicle traveled northbound in was in the far right lane and veered off to the right of its lane on several occasions (at least 3 times), the vehicle was also paced by my vehicle unit 246 going 60 mph in a 45 mph zone. I conducted a stop at 4800 on the Mini and met with driver Joanna Sadowski and advised her the reason for the stop was due to her violating the traffic control device (failing to maintain single lane) was running and for speeding. She was able to provide her Florida driver’s license but pulled out the sticker from the car showing the price and not the registration, she then retrieved her registration but never provided her insurance.
“While speaking with her I could smell a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from her person, her eyes were blood shot and glossy and she was slurring her speech. I then asked her where she was coming from and she replied Nippers (local bar). I then asked her if she had anything to drink tonight and she replied that she had been drinking. Officer Gama arrived on scene as my backup.
“Based on my observations I asked Sadowski to step out of her vehicle so I could ask her to submit to roadside sobriety tasks. I then asked if she would submit to the roadside sobriety tasks to dispel my alarm that she was under the influence of alcohol. Sadowski advised she would submit to the roadside tasks.
“I walked over to a flat surface with a solid line to conduct the tasks. She advised she had no medical or physical problems that would prevent her from doing the task. The tasks that were conducted were the walk and turn, one leg stand, finger to nose and the Rhomberg Alphabet.”
The officer reported that Sadowski failed all of the roadside sobriety tests with the one exception; that Sadowski, the veteran teacher, passed the recitation of the alphabet.
Sadowski provided two breath samples for police which tested at .222 and .215. She was then taken to the Palm Beach County jail and processed.
