Police release video of woman’s cartwheels during DWI stop

 

Albuquerque police on Tuesday released police lapel camera footage of a sobriety test of a suspect who was arrested after she kept doing cartwheels during the test.

The video shows an officer try to get Bryelle Marshall, 23, to face one direction and do a “walk and turn” inmate_imagetest.

But Marshall kept raising her arms and making a gymnastic pose.

“We’re not doing yoga, I don’t know what you’re doing,” the officer said at one point.

The video shows that Marshall performed cartwheels at least two times, and on one of the attempts she fell to the ground. She laughed or giggled repeatedly during the test.

“This is serious. This isn’t a joke. This isn’t haha,” the officer told her at one point. “I don’t know why you’re doing somersaults or cartwheels or whatever they are?”

“Yeah, me neither,” Marshall said from the ground.

The encounter happened Friday night after police were called to the area of Zuni and Pennsylvania after reports that someone was driving recklessly. Officers located Marshall’s vehicle partially into a roadway on Zuni and police said that Marshall was asleep in the front seat.

“Officers on-scene were extremely patient with Marshall, giving her several opportunities to complete the required tests,” Albuquerque police said in a news release. “Based on the observations officers made of Marshall’s sobriety this situation could have been a lot worse.”

Marshall was charged with aggravated drunken driving, battery and having an expired license plate.
