A San Carlos Park woman is facing a DUI charge after authorities say she pulled up next to the Lee County sheriff's deputies who were in the process of arresting an acquaintance of hers.

Deputies say they were responding to a vehicle burglary in progress around 4 a.m. Sunday, in which the suspect got into an altercation with the vehicle owner, according to an arrest report. They were interviewing witnesses when a woman pulled up in a red Chevy Blazer.

Deputies approached the vehicle and spoke with Courtney Sha Greene, 21, of the 9100 block of Aster Road. She inquired about the person they apprehended. She asked for him by name. When they responded it was in fact the person she was asking about, deputies say she did not seem surprised by their response.

Deputies noticed a strong odor of alcohol emanating from Greene's mouth, reports said. Her speech was slurred and her eyes bloodshot. It took her about two minutes to remove her ID from her purse, reports said.

Greene failed field sobriety tests and almost fell during one of them.
