DUNNELLON, Fla. -

A Marion County woman has been arrested on driving under the influence charges after she was found inside a car naked from the waist down with empty boxed wine and her dog in the vehicle.

Karen Worley Drake, 51, was charged with DUI after she failed sobriety exercises and refused to give breath samples on Sunday night.

Drake's car was parked halfway onto SW 129th Terrace Road, when a deputy noticed her and proceeded to have her open the car door.

"I could smell a very strong odor of an alcoholic beverage,” the deputy said in the report. The deputy instructed Drake to dress herself.

“I advised the defendant that she was under arrest for DUI and she became uncooperative and briefly struggled with me,” the deputy said.

She remains in the Marion County Jail with a $1,000 bond, while the dog was placed into the custody of Marion County Animal Services.
