Grandma Offers Grilled Cheese Sandwich in Effort to Avoid Florida DUI

A 65 year old woman in Ocala Florida tried to avoid an arrest for drunk driving by offering to make the police officer a grilled cheese sandwich. Elsie Wright O’Conner was stopped Thursday night after reports of an erratic driver. Marion County Sheriff’s Deputy Calvin Batts smelled alcohol on O’Conner’s breath and found two bottles of Skyy vodka in her Cadillac SUV. One of the bottles was empty and the other was half full.

O’Conner pleaded with Batts to not charge her, stating she was a grandma and not that bad. She went on to say, “I could have brought you back to my house and made you a grilled cheese sandwich.”

O’Conner reportedly failed a field sobriety test. While being booked on charges of driving under the influence in FL, O’Conner’s blood alcohol content registered more than three times the legal limit.
