Bikini-wearing Naples grandma arrested for DUI-crash with grandson in BMW

NAPLES, Fla– A day at the pool with grandma turned into a frightening evening for a little boy who narrowly escaped injury after a severe car crash.

Only a WINK News camera caught the bikini-wearing Naples grandmother as she attempted field sobriety tests shortly after the crash.

Collier County Sheriff’s Deputies reported Patricia Ebel, 49, was intoxicated when she drove her BMW into a car that was stopped at the intersection of Goldengate Parkway and Livingston Road.

Ebel was driving with her 10-year-old grandson at the time after the pair had been swimming, deputies said.

Ebel’s arrest report states deputies smelled a strong odor of alcohol on Ebel and that she failed field-sobriety-tests.

The driver of the car that was hit was later taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Ebel is facing DUI charges including driving with a .15-or-greater blood alcohol content (BAC) with a minor in the car.

WINK News attempted to contact Ebel at the Naples home listed as her address in her arrest report but she could not be reached.
