An Ocala woman accused of running her car into a mailbox and leaving the scene yelled about men in green and being raped while resisting arrest Monday night.
Jennifer Marie George, 35, of 4101 SE 46th St., was charged with driving under the influence of alcohol, DUI with property damage, leaving the scene of a crash with damage, and obstructing without violence. She was released Tuesday from the Marion County Jail on $3,500 bond.
The owners of the home on SE 47th Place, where the damage occurred, saw George hit the mailbox and leave. They followed her a few houses down the street, where they said she stopped the car and slumped to the left in the driver’s seat. After the witnesses called 911, George took off again and led them on a chase that ended when she turned into her driveway, according to the Marion County Sheriff’s Office report.
Deputies observed fresh damage to the front-right bumper of George’s vehicle and detected the strong odor of alcohol that got stronger and fresher when she started yelling. She was initially laying on the ground and would not comply with commands for her to get up, according to the report.
When asked what happened, George started yelling about the men in green and being raped. She kept stumbling and needed help walking while being taken to the patrol car. When she was told deputies were conducting a DUI investigation, George started yelling, “Take me.” She continued to yell while being read her Miranda rights and while trying to perform field sobriety exercises, according to the report.
George resisted deputies’ efforts to place her in the patrol car by pushing with her feet against the vehicle. Once inside, she kicked the driver’s side rear window and the plastic glass portion of the rear partition, according to the report.
At the jail, George refused to exit the patrol vehicle and had to be removed. She agreed to take a breathalyzer test but kept falling out of her chair and would not follow directions while it was being administered. Her blood-alcohol level was finally measured at .232 and .218, according to the report.
