Drunk driver upset by cops' interruption

BOSTON, Nov. 8 (UPI) -- Hitting another car while driving drunk did not deter a 35-year old Roslindale, Mass., woman from bossing cops around, the Boston Herald reported Monday.

Officers Tab Brown and Michael Estepe were responding to a report from Medford resident Thiago Ferroni a Subaru hit his car from behind at high speed when he was stopped at a light at 3 a.m. Friday.

Subaru driver Anne Marie Carpenter's cell phone rang as they tried to talk to her, to which she responded: "I'm taking this call. Wait your turn."

The officers told the Herald subsequent attempts to talk to Carpenter only elicited obscenities, while a request she get out of her car and wait on the sidewalk for her own safety caused her to suggest they "Go (expletive) yourself. I'll do what I want. I've been around for a long time."

Despite the accident, and the fact she was stumbling when trying to walk, Carpenter also refused to take a sobriety test.

The officers finally were able to handcuff Carpenter and take her to District 14, where she vomited on them.
