According to the Fort Oglethorpe Police Department:
McKinzie Anne Ball and Margaux Marie Boutaud, both 20, were charged with underage consumption of alcohol following a traffic stop on Sunday, Oct. 21.
Ball, who was driving the 1991 Jeep Cherokee the ladies were traveling in, garnered additional charges of DUI, failure to maintain lane, and driving without a license on person.
Both women were released from jail on bond following the incident.
Officer Michael Cannon initiated a traffic stop at the intersection of Cloud Springs and Park Lake Roads after witnessing Ball almost strike a median and continuously weave in and out of her driving lane, reports show.
"As I approached the vehicle, I detected the strong odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from inside the vehicle," Cannon said. "While speaking with Ms. Ball, I noticed her speech was slurred and she was having problems answering my questions. I asked for her driver's license, and she stated that she did not have it with her."
Ball admitted to consuming wine earlier in the evening before driving as well as prescription drugs, reports show.
"She (Ball) stated that she had one glass of wine and advised me that she had taken Geodon and Ativan, which she claimed she was prescribed for her psychiatric issues," Cannon said.
Ball then failed a standardized field sobriety test, reports show.
"I also spoke with the passenger (Boutaud) who stated that she too was 20 years of age, and that she had drank multiple glasses of wine," Cannon said. "Ms. Boutaud was highly intoxicated and was unable to hold her head up."
When asked to exit the vehicle, Boutaud needed assistance getting out, and was unable to walk without help, reports show.
