Bryelle Marshall didn't walk in a straight line during a field sobriety test in Albuquerque, NM, on Friday—but she did do cartwheels. After receiving a report about a reckless driver, officers say they found the 23-year-old asleep in the driver's seat of her car, parked partially on a road, report NBC New York and the Albuquerque Journal. What happened next was captured by a police body camera. While attempting to get Marshall to complete a sobriety test, officers say she instead began performing cartwheels and, during one rotation, hit an officer in the back. She was subsequently arrested and charged with battery, aggravated DWI, and driving with an expired license plate. (More drunk driving stories.)
