A Lady Lake woman was arrested on a drunk driving charge after a crash on U.S. Hwy. 27/441.

Jessica Linn Coffee, 27, was driving a dark-colored Nissan at 11:14 p.m. Saturday when her vehicle swerved and struck another car on U.S. Hwy. 27/441 near Eagles Nest Road in Fruitland Park, according to an arrest report from the Lake County Sheriff’s Office. She had bloodshot eyes and slurred speech. The Nevada native performed poorly on field sobriety exercises.

When deputies attempted to take Coffee into custody, she tensed up and began to scream profanities. She kicked the window of a patrol car before she finally began to calm down, the report said.

Coffee provided breath samples that registered .232 and .230 blood alcohol content. She was arrested on a charge of driving under the influence and booked at the Lake County Jail. She was released after posting $1,000 bond.
