LAS VEGAS, Nev. (702 Times, NV Globe) – The woman involved in an impaired driving collision in Summerlin last week has been recognized by police.
Roselin Pelas was detained on Saturday, December 10, near Sahara Avenue and Grand Canyon Drive, after authorities concluded she was intoxicated after administering a battery of field sobriety tests.
Police were summoned to the scene when a woman suspected to be inebriated refused to provide information after rear-ending the person phoning.
Responding cops made contact with a woman identified as Pelas, who was still driving a silver Lincoln MKX with her head against the driver’s side window and her eyes closed.
Pelas seemed disoriented, had sluggish movements, and glassy/droopy eyes, according to an arrest report. She was then instructed to exit the car so that field sobriety tests could be administered.
Pelas cooperated but failed all of the tests, and he was arrested.
A jar with a green leafy material, a container with cotton balls and straws with residue, a huge glass water smoking pipe, a gray container with a sticker reading ‘cannabis’ on it, and two little baggies of a crystal-like substance were discovered in her car before it was towed.
She eventually admitted to authorities that she had meth in her handbag and that she had been using it “every other day” for “three or four years.”
Pelas also informed authorities she had a handgun in a vehicle safe that was locked with a key.
Officers entered the safe and discovered a 9mm semi-automatic FN pistol, which Pelas is not entitled to possess as a meth user.
She was arrested and put into the Clark County Detention Center on various accusations of speeding, DUI, and weapons possession.
