Sharon Robinson Stevens is supposed to be an example to the hundreds of
children that are at her school, but her arrest on Friday night for driving
under the influence may have ruined her reputation. The Palm Beach County
School District says that they are looking into the matter at present,
and believe that they won’t allow the principal to assume her position.
The woman was driving a four-door, green Toyota sedan when she ran her
car into a curb in Palm Beach. While the accident only involved a one-foot
cement wall, the car was not drivable after it collided with the curb.
The woman identified herself to a police sergeant who came to help, and
said that she was the principal of Palm Beach Public School.
The police officer investigating the accident realized the Stevens was
not sober, and arrested her. He reported that she had slurred speech and
her breath smelled strongly of an alcoholic beverage. She was taken to
the Palm Beach County Jail after it was proven that she registered a .19
on her two breathalyzer tests. This is more than twice the legal alcoholic
limit, which is only .08. The woman was booked in the jail at just after
midnight on Saturday, and was released from jail later that morning. The
Florida Department of Law Enforcement was able to confirm that this was
Stevens’ first arrest.
Her affidavit says that she was confused at the time of the arrest, and
did not even know that she hit a curb. The woman could not walk a straight
line during her field sobriety tests, and kept asking the police “What
happened and what’s wrong?” Stevens admitted that she had
had a drink and a half that night. If you were arrested for a
