In mid-April, Fishburne pleaded not guilty to four counts of DUI-related charges and is preparing for trial later this year. She’s currently free on $2,500-bond.
The video shows Fishburne failing her field sobriety tests, and her conversation with arresting trooper Juan Pinzon of Florida Highway Patrol.
The video begins with Fishburne taking off her high heels as Pinzon tells her she has to perform a sobriety test. Identifying herself as a “dance professional,” she tells Pinzon she might not be able to perform some of the tests because she suffered a broken ankle last year.
Later, she has trouble understanding the “walk and turn” instructions. She tells Pinzon he should sympathize with her as a fellow “Latino American” and cites the “political situation” with President Trump to explain why she can’t understand the sobriety test instructions.
“In the situation we’re going through with Donald Trump,” Fishburne tells Pinzon, “as a Latino American to another Latino American, I would appreciate if you could show me the exercise correctly so I can do it correctly. …That would make me feel better because I really don’t like the political situation in America.”
The video shows Fishburne still can’t manage the sobriety test after Pinzon demonstrates it, and the trooper handcuffs her, which apparently makes Fishburne want to urinate.
