One Oregon sheriff’s office went to Facebook to reveal its “weirdest DUI arrest of the weekend,” where law enforcement officials arrested a woman after she poured alcohol into a Taco Bell drive-thru employees mouth.
Allegedly, the incident happened around 1 a.m. on earlier this month at a Taco Bell branch in Beaverton, Ore.
The 23-year-old suspect, Elianna Aguilar-Aguliar from Cornelius, Ore., had a blood alcohol level of 0.12 percent. The Oregon state limit is 0.08.
The Washington County Sheriff’s Office wrote in its Facebook post how she poured alcohol into the employees mouth “right in front of a sheriff’s office sergeant,” while she was “still in her car.”
Aguilar-Aguilar’s attempted to share Hennessy Cognac with the Taco Bell employee but the Deputy Brian van Kleef claimed the employee did not actually consume the alcohol.
“We talked to the employee after, and he said most of it was spilled on him and that he actually didn’t consume the Hennessy,” van Kleef shared with The Oregonian. Allegedly, both the driver and the employee did not know each other.
While the police seemed to poke fun at the entire incident through a Facebook post, some folks were not pleased and spoke out in the comments about how it is rude for the police to post about her.
“I understand this is comical but it’s at the expense of someone that made a mistake that will impact her life for a long time. Why are we shaming her?” one person wrote. “I’m disappointed that the sheriffs office thinks this is appropriate. People should still have to experience the consequence to their actions but kicking them while they’re down doesn’t seem like something that’s helping build community.”
While another person suggested how everyone makes mistakes but they do not go viral on social media.
“Come on now… We all have our finest moments, just not everyone’s is plastered all over social media,” the person wrote. “Reminder to never drink & drive and or pour.”
“Seems even weirder that “government officials” are publicly shaming a human,” another wrote. “Isn’t the point of an arrest like that to help someone and make sure they aren’t endangering themselves or others? Why brag or shame?”
Aguilar-Aguilar was later released from Washington County Jail a few days later.
