"She had bloodshot, watery eyes, slurred speech and the strong smell of alcohol on her breath," said officer James Duffy, quoting the police report, according to People. "She admitted to drinking three beers and smoking marijuana prior to entering the checkpoint."

Police said Pacino's blood-alcohol level was over the legal limit for driving.
