An allegedly intoxicated driver van hit a parked vehicle - and then drove away - after getting into an argument with her husband, on Monday, July 19, at approximately 10 p.m.
Rachel Field-Borodin, 29, of Tumwater, blew a .219 on the preliminary breath test after failing several of the field sobriety tests, including catching herself multiple times while trying to maintain balance.
Stating that she had had a difficult week, including needing “space” after arguing with her husband, Field-Borodin decided to leave her house. Three neighbors reported to police that she “tore down” the street and “swerved” to avoid hitting a truck before her car sideswiped a blue Toyota car.
According to the police report, Field-Borodin stated that she had drank one beer at 3 p.m. It was just before 10 p.m. when she allegedly hit the parked vehicle.
At one point, Field-Borodin was confused by a Tumwater police officer's instructions, and walked around to the rear passenger side door of the patrol car, attempting to get inside the vehicle.
On the Draeger, Field-Borodin blew a 0.192, which is more than twice the legal limit of 0.08 in the state of Washington.
During the transport, Field-Borodin cried in the back of the patrol car, stating that “she screwed up her career and everything that she had worked for.”
Field-Borodin was booked into the Nisqually Jail and booked for driving under the influence, and the arresting officer forwarded charges that she further be charged for hit and run, unoccupied.
