Utah Highway Patrol troopers noted Vanatta “swayed while standing,” slurred her speech, and had glassy, bloodshot eyes.

When troopers took the woman into custody to administer a blood test, one wrote in a booking affidavit that “she offered me $1,000 dollars to let her go” and “while at the office, she offered to show me and a female trooper her breasts,” Deseret News reported.
