Grandmother in Bikini Arrested For Drunk Driving with Grandson in the Car

A scantily clad grandmother was arrested after she drunkenly crashed her car in Naples, Florida. Patricia Ebel, who police determined to be under the influence of alcohol, smashed her BMW into a stopped car at an intersection. Her 10-year old grandson was in the vehicle at the time.

The 49-year-old reportedly failed a field sobriety test, and was even filmed staggering around wearing nothing but a bikini at the scene of the incident.

The footage shot by WINK News, shows Collier County Sheriff’s Deputies issue the sobriety test—during which she exhibited multiple signs of intoxication. They reported a strong odor of alcohol.

She was allegedly found to be driving with a blood alcohol content well above the legal limit.

Apparently Ebel and her grandson had spent the day at the pool swimming, which at least explains her unusual driving attire—if not her terrible behavior afterwards.

Ebel now faces serious DUI charges, including driving with a .15-or-greater blood alcohol content with a minor in the car.

Fortunately, her grandson was not injured in the crash. The driver of the other vehicle was taken to the hospital for non-life threatening injuries.
