Odessa police arrested a woman early Friday morning, accusing her of driving while intoxicated and colliding with an Odessa police car.
Marisa Belia Amador, 31, was arrested around 2:45 a.m. Friday morning and charged with misdemeanor driving while intoxicated.
An Odessa police release states officers patrolling the area saw a black Cadillac Escalade stopped at the intersection of University Boulevard and Bonham Avenue, and approached the vehicle to find a woman, later identified as Amador, to be in the driver’s seat with her head down, appearing to be asleep or unconscious.
After Amador woke up to officers tapping on the vehicle door, officers instructed her to open the door and she shook her head “no,” the release states, before Amador took her foot off the brake, causing her vehicle to crash into a marked OPD car.
There were no reports of any injuries. The release states officers smelled a strong odor of alcohol coming from Amador’s breath, before she was arrested and taken to the Ector County Law Enforcement Center.
