The incident began last week when officers responded to a solo car crash on Stanley Blvd, as tweeted by the Pleasanton Police Department. After performing standardized field sobriety tests, officers determined Khoury to be under the influence of drugs. Further investigation revealed that Khoury had a fanny pack containing over 50 grams of methamphetamine, and 60 grams of fentanyl. Subsequently, she was booked at Santa Rita Jail.
In addition to the DUI charges, and drug possession, Khoury faces animal abuse charges due to the injuries sustained by her dog during the crash.
