"Officers ... responded to a traffic accident where a driver had struck another car, continued driving until she smashed into a street sign and then stopped. The officers queried the driver, who was obviously inebriated. She stated that she had been taking a number of medications and had been drinking 'too much vodka.' She further stated that she had been rushing to go to a liquor store on Noriega to get 'some more vodka.'"
The defendant is advised that there is a difference between pleading the fifth and pleading for a fifth.
