On Friday, 11/18/16 at approximately 6:30 AM, an officer conducting a traffic stop on CR 512 and I-95 was contacted by another motorist who was concerned about the woman traveling behind him. He pointed out her vehicle as it passed their location and told the officer that she was traveling 25 MPH on I-95 and he feared she could possibly be impaired.
The officer concluded his traffic stop and followed the vehicle in question. The officer observed the driver, later identified as Krystina Teeter of Middleburg Florida, travel 25 mph on a 45-mph zone while failing to maintain her lane. Teeter eventually turned in to the entrance to the St. Sebastian Buffer Preserve and stopped her car without being directed.
The officer made contact with her to check her welfare and immediately detected several signs of possible impairment, to include the strong odor of alcohol coming from her breath, slurred speech, difficulty producing required documents, and her comment that she thought she was in Middleburg (a city near Jacksonville). The officer also noted that Teeter had two black eyes she said were from a previous domestic violence incident.
Teeter did not perform the field sobriety tests satisfactorily so she was arrested for DUI and transported to the Indian River County Jail without incident. She refused to take a breath test.
