An officer booked Roxanne E. Dunlap, 40, of Prescott into the Yavapai County
Jail in Camp Verde on charges of aggravated DUI.
At 9:55 p.m., officers arrived and found a man speaking to Dunlap, who stood next to a Ford pickup truck.
Dunlap was barefoot in the snow wearing just a bra, longjohns, and a jacket with a full bottle of 99 Banana Schnapps liquor next to her feet, according to the police report.
Several witnesses told officers they saw Dunlap drive a pickup truck into the apartment parking lot and get out of the driver’s side door.
As the officer spoke to Dunlap, he noticed she slurred her words, and he detected a strong odor of alcohol coming from her, according to the police report.
The officer had Dunlap sit in the passenger seat of the pickup truck because she showed poor balance and was standing barefoot in the snow, according to the police report.
Dunlap initially told the officer that her friend drove her to the apartment complex, but later said she drove herself to the parking lot, according to the police report.
Officers found Dunlap had the keys to the truck on her. When the officer looked inside the vehicle, he saw two prescription pill bottles prescribed to Dunlap and two more bottles of 99 Banana’s Schnapps liquor, according to the police report.
While officers spoke with Dunlap, she became antagonistic, combative and cursed. She seemed angry at times and cried at other times, according to the police report.
An officer had dispatch run a license check on Dunlap and learned her license was suspended.
The man Dunlap had been talking to when officers arrived stated he wished to be a victim of disorderly conduct, according the police report.
When officers told her she was under arrest, Dunlap told them, "You’re not taking me to jail" and refused to put her hands behind her back, so officers removed her from the truck and placed her under arrest.
After officers determined Dunlap was impaired, they took her home so she could put on appropriate clothing and brought her to the police station.
Dunlap yelled, cursed as officers, tried to leave the DUI room, and officers physically restrained her, according to the police report.
As an officer tried to place Dunlap in a holding cell, Dunlap pulled away, flopped down on the ground and hit her back on the metal corner of the holding cell bed support, according to the police report.
Dunlap told officers she was seriously injured in the fall and fire department paramedics were called, but Dunlap refused to be seen by the male paramedics and demanded a woman treat her instead, according to the police report.
Dunlap said she had no feeling in her lower extremities and was taken to Yavapai Regional Medical Center for further treatment.
While en route, the paramedic drew blood from Dunlap, which showed a blood alcohol content reading of 0.212, according to the police report.
Because it was undetermined how long Dunlap would be at the hospital, the officer told her she was no longer in police custody and left the hospital.
When the officer called the hospital at 4 a.m. Wednesday morning to find out about Dunlap’s condition, he learned that Dunlap asked to be released 10 minutes after the officer left and told the doctor she staged her injury, according to the police report. The doctor granted her release.
It was unclear at press time if there is a policy in place that should have referred the release request back to police.
At 10:55 p.m. Wednesday, officers contacted Dunlap at her home, arrested her and booked her into the county jail.
