The man had arrived at the Fort Walton Beach Airport to deliver their child to her. However, when he spoke to her on the phone, he realized that she was slurring her speech the entire time. Deputies arrived at the airport and made contact with Guillen in the parking lot. They found her in the driver’s seat of her vehicle and she was confused.
Guillen told deputies that she took prescription medicines earlier in the day. After field sobriety tests, they found that she was under the influence and she was arrested for DUI. She also had three small children in the van, which led to three counts of child neglect on top of her charges.
A breath sample showed that she was more than four times over the legal limit. She was taken to the Fort Walton Beach Medical Center and then to the Okaloosa County Jail.
