When stopped Blair Worobow after she allegedly swerved from one lane of Deerfield Road to another Feb. 29, it was the second traffic stop within 10 minutes for the 22-year old Highland Park woman, according to Deerfield Police reports.
Before the incident was over, Worobow was charged with Driving Under the Influence (Drugs) and improper lane usage, according to the report. Worobow indicated substances found in the vehicle could be cocaine and marijuana.
Police are waiting for the results of the lab reports on the substances as well as results from blood and urine tests before taking further action, according to Deerfield Police Commander Rick Weil.
Police spotted Worobow driving eastbound on Deerfield road at 2:13 a.m. just past Waukegan Road swerving between lanes when they stopped her driving a black land rover, according to the report.
“Hi, I was just pulled over literally 10 minutes ago,” Worobow said in the report. “I’m sorry. It’s been a horrible night. I’m crying because I got pulled over but I’m freaking out. I promise you there is nothing else going on. I’m sorry.”
After Worobow handed police two alleged citations from the Buffalo Grove Police, Deerfield Police confirmed she had been cited earlier in Buffalo Grove and passed a sobriety test.
While Worobow was still sitting in the vehicle, the report indicated the officer smelled an odor that was “more than cigarettes” and saw a Dollar bill rolled into an alleged straw. At that point, Worobow denied police permission to search the vehicle.
“I want to call my lawyer,” Worobow told police according to the report. She was told she did not have that option yet. She then claimed to be having a panic attack, according to the report, and an ambulance was called to take her to the Highland Park Hospital emergency room.
Before leaving for the hospital, Worobow agreed to a search of the vehicle. A K-9 unit from Bannockburn was called to assist with the search. According to the report, police found powder residue on the Dollar bill and substances Worobow allegedly admitted could be cocaine and cannabis.
Weil said police would await lab results before deciding if there would be further charges.
