On July 27, 2016, around 10:00 am, officers with the West Sacramento Police Department conducted an investigation for driving under the influence after Ms. Williams was seen weaving and showing other signs of being under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

She participated in two separate sets of field sobriety tests and performed poorly on both. Ms. Williams' blood had an alcohol concentration of .05% and a meth amphetamine concentration of 190 nanograms per milliliter. Among her signs of impairment included: eyelid tremors, rapid speech, elevated blood pressure, and pulse.
