Duchesne Co. Ut. - On 11/10/23, at around 8:00 am, Deputy Smith received a call from dispatch that a male wanted to press charges against his sister, 23-year-old Anna Chrislinn Carroll, for the theft of his gray 2009 Mitsubishi Lancer.
The complainant was asked for the details, and he stated that on 11/2/23, Anna had been involved in a crash while driving drunk in his car. The complainant had only found out about Anna taking his car last night, but this morning, when he called the tow company, he found out she had crashed his car.
The complainant said he removed the insurance from the vehicle before the incident and had kept the car at his father’s house in Roosevelt.
Deputy Smith met with Anna and spoke with her about taking the car without her brother's permission. Anna was informed that it was a felony charge and that she would be arrested. Anna complied and was taken to the Duchesne County Jail without incident.
On 11/2/23, at approximately 6:45 pm, UHP Trooper Shaw was advised by dispatch that a vehicle was in a ditch. The complainant stated the driver was intoxicated. When the Trooper arrived, he saw a gray passenger car stuck on a small tree on a ditch bank and a female speaking to her children outside the car near the rear passenger side.
Trooper Shaw spoke with the female and immediately could smell the odor of alcohol coming from her breath. The Trooper requested Anna Carroll to do the Standardized Field Sobriety Tests, and she agreed. Trooper Shaw observed several clues throughout the tests and determined that Anna was too intoxicated to be operating a motor vehicle.
Anna was asked to blow into a portable breath test, and she refused.
Anna was transported to UBMC for medical clearance, and the DUI admonitions were read to her. Carroll refused to submit to a DUI blood draw. The Trooper read her the DUI blood draw admonitions again, and she still refused. A DUI blood draw warrant was applied for and approved.
A records check on Anna showed she had a revoked alcohol offense driver's license, alcohol-restricted driver, and an ignition interlock device required.
