Witnesses: Pasco woman in car foaming at mouth with young girl in back seat

Pasco County

Passed out behind the wheel, foaming at the mouth, with an 8-year-old girl in the back seat.

That’s how witnesses describe the scene at a Port Richey Dunkin’ Donuts Monday afternoon.

Workers noticed a customer acting odd with a young girl in the car.

They called 911.

Body cam video shows Deputy Beckman talking with Kerri Conley sitting in her car at the drive-through.

Witnesses reported, she looked high on something.

“No, I’m on Predisone” said Conley on the body cam video.

Dunkin employees said Conley had been foaming at the mouth.

“I just want to make sure you’re okay,” said Deputy Beckman.

“No. I’m okay,” said Conley.

“Okay. You’re like nodding off behind the wheel, you’ve got a baby in the car,” said the deputy.

Conley’s license had been revoked at the first of the year.

“I’m worried. I’m worried about you. I really am worried about you,” said Deputy Beckman.

Conley,33, has a long lists of arrests, dating back a decade, for DUI, petit theft and aggravated assault.

The deputy checked her for sobriety. He reports she didn’t pass.

“Not only was the child in danger, but also, everybody else on the road around this woman who was driving,” said Kevin Doll with the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office.

Dunkin’ management is being praised for averting a potential tragedy.

“We want to thank the people at Dunkin’ who called this in, first of all. They saw something that was amiss with this woman actually driving through the drive-through with the child in the back seat,” said Doll.

“You’re being arrested for one, driving under the influence,” said Deputy Beckman, on the body worn camera.

“Sir, I’m not driving under the influence,” protested Conley.

She was taken off the jail.

Her charges include child neglect and DUI.
