WARWICK — Officers Jamey Petit and Jonathan Byrne were called to the scene of a single car crash Feb. 24 at 1:22 a.m. at the intersection of Greeley Avenue and Main Avenue, ultimately arresting the driver on a DUI charge.

When they arrived, the officers found a white 2016 Kia Optima facing east in the right hand, westbound lane, showing heavy damage to

both driver’s side wheels, according to Petit’s report. The car seemed to have struck the curb on the westbound side, according to the officer’s account.

Petit met and identified the driver as Julienna Naylor, 30 of 935 Pontiac Ave., Cranston. Naylor told the officer she had just left her boyfriend’s home, where she had been drinking, according to the officer’s report.

Petit reported that as they spoke, she could sense a moderate odor of alcohol on Naylor’s breath, that her speech was slurred. Naylor also told her that she should not have been driving.

Petit asked Naylor to take a series of sobriety test, to which she agreed. During the tests, Naylor demonstrated a lack of smooth pursuit in her vision, was unable to walk a straight line as instructed and could not balance safely on one foot.

Petit arrested Naylor on suspicion of DUI and transported her to Warwick Police Headquarters, 99 Veterans Memorial Drive, where she registered a .246 and .249 on successive blood alcohol breath tests.

Petit charged Naylor with DUI, .15 or greater, 1st offense, and released into the custody of her boyfriend with a summons to answer the charges in Third District Court.
