Police: Pittsville Woman Drunkenly Breaks into Home

Posted: Updated:
WHALEYVILLE, Md. - A Pittsville, Md. woman was arrested for allegedly drunkenly breaking into a home on Sheppards Crossing Road, authorities said Tuesday.

Deputies with the Worcester County Sheriff's Office say they responded to an alleged burglary around 8:15 p.m. Friday. Deputies say the victim stated a drunk woman had entered the back door of her home without permission. After a short argument, the victim told deputies the woman left the home through the front door.

Deputies say shortly after, they found the suspect who was identified as 32-year-old Diana Griffin, of Pittsville, Md., who was seated in her vehicle in the driveway. Deputies say Griffin was asked to roll down her window, and a strong odor of alcohol was smelled on her breath as she spoke, the deputy said. Deputies say Griffin's eyes also looked bloodshot and glassy and she slurred her words as she spoke.

Deputies say they attempted to conduct a field sobriety test on Griffin, but she refused several times. Griffin was placed under arrest after resisting attempts and charged with fourth-degree burglary, driving while impaired by alcohol, driving under the influence of alcohol, violating an alcohol restriction, and resisting arrest, according to police. Griffin was later released on her personal recognizance pending trial.
