Roosevelt, Ut. On December 1st, 2023, at around 10:30 pm, Deputy Borrelli was patrolling US-40 when a vehicle pulled out of the Maverik fuel station and quickly accelerated.
The vehicle's speed was locked on the Deputy's radar at 61 mph in a 40 mph zone. The car turned left into Stewart's parking lot. Deputy Borrelli conducted a traffic stop in the parking lot.
The driver was identified as 38-year-old Danielle Marie Lucero from her driver's license. While speaking with her, the Deputy could smell a strong odor of alcohol coming from the vehicle.
When performing a records check, it showed Danielle's driver's license was suspended, she was an alcohol-restricted driver, and her vehicle didn't have insurance. While Deputy Borrelli was speaking with Danielle, she began to cry and say, "I'm fucked, just take me in."
When asked how much she had to drink, she replied, "I had about four shots."
Danielle was asked to step out of the vehicle to perform the Standard Field Sobriety Test (SFST). Danielle began to cry even more and then stopped asking in a normal tone if the test had to be done. It was explained it was to test to show if she was under the influence.
Danielle stated to take her. Deputy Borrelli asked if she didn't want to perform the SFST, and she agreed to the test. After the walk and turn, Danielle refused to finish the SFST.
It was concluded with the SFST performed by Danielle that she was under the influence while operating a vehicle and arrested. Danielle provided a breath sample using the PBT. The test indicated a positive sample of alcohol.
Danielle was transported to the Duchesne County Jail and booked in for driving under the influence, driving on a suspended driver's license, alcohol-restricted driver, operating a vehicle without insurance, speeding, and failure to wear a seatbelt.
