WOODS CROSS, Utah (KSTU) -- A woman was sentenced this week after calling police about an intoxicated driver, then getting arrested herself for driving under the influence.

Breanna Dawn Hernandez, 32, told a dispatcher she believed she was following an intoxicated driver on August 16.

“The call-taker stated Breanna sounded intoxicated, was burping, and laughing uncontrollably on the phone,” a court document said.

The dispatcher asked Hernandez for the license plate of the vehicle she was calling to report, and Hernandez gave the dispatcher her own license plate number.

Police found Hernandez in the driver’s seat of her car and a “near empty bottle of Fireball Whisky in the driver’s cup holder,” according to court documents.

When Hernandez spotted officers, she got out of the car and tried to run away, a probable cause statement said.

“Breanna had to be restrained by officers who reported they could smell the odor of alcoholic beverage coming from her person,” the statement said.
