Drunk driver excited to see breath test score

After driving her car into a ditch, an inebriated woman told Summit County sheriff’s deputies she was drunk and, later, she was excited to see how she did on a breathalyzer test.
Deputies arrived to help the woman after her car slid off the southbound shoulder of Highway 9 and got stuck in the snow just before 1 Saturday morning.
She told them she had missed her turn and slid into the ditch attempting to turn around. She then announced, “I am drunk. I will do your tests, but I will go to jail,” according to a report from the sheriff’s office.
Sure enough, deputies noticed she had red eyes, slurred speech and she kind of smelled like booze.
After failing the roadside sobriety tests, the woman was placed in custody and agreed, somewhat enthusiastically, to a breath test.
“I’m excited to see what I blow,” she said as deputies put her in the patrol car.
She blew a .170.
She was booked and charged with DUI and making an illegal u-turn.
A local man sucker punched his roommate after he “got carried away” over an argument about shoveling snow Sunday night.
The man said he “just snapped,” and apparently punched his roommate in the back of the head after a heated argument about household chores, a report from the sheriff’s office said.
The two had been arguing about snow removal when the man told his roommate he was “in a fighting mood, but wouldn’t fight him since he was sitting down,” according to the report.
The roommate then stood up and continued the verbal fight. A few minutes later the roommate turned around to walk away from the fight when the man punched him in the back of the head, knocking him into a wall and then pinned him to the ground.
A few seconds later he got up and the roommate called 911.
The roommate wasn’t hurt, just surprised by the hit.
The man was arrested and charged with harassment.
