Was a Miami police officer drunk when she wrecked a squad car? 0

By Carlos Miller

Update: The Miami Herald has identified the officer as Sarah-Anne Hoyle, 24, who worked the 3-11 p.m. shift in Coconut Grove.

She was dressed in strappy heels, jeans and a black t-shirt when she wrecked a marked Miami police car at 4:50 a.m. Wednesday.

Witnesses said she slammed into a van, then stumbled out of the car. When a uniformed officer arrived on the scene and asked for identification, she reached into a gray butterfly-print purse, allowing a police radio to fall out.

Police told witnesses that she may have had a diabetic shock episode.

But at least one witness was under the impression that she was drunk.

Nevertheless, police waited three hours – after they gave her something to eat – to administer a field sobriety test, according to The Miami Herald.
