Florida Woman Caught Driving On Xanax, Sangria & Justification through Religion

May 28 was not a great day for Florida’s police. Florida native Nicole Ann Mintner, 45, was found in her silver Dodge with the engine running and the hazard lights on. When officers tried to ask her to remove her sunglasses and to ask questions, she got belligerent. She admitted drinking four now-empty bottles of sangria and swallowing a Xanax, but justified it by telling officers, “Jesus drank wine and so did I.” After being brought to the station screaming and threatening to urinate in the officers’ back seat, she began singing “Amazing Grace” loudly, throwing clothes and flashing her breasts. She is on a $6,000 bail.

While it is difficult to determine whether she has an addiction, it sounds like she most likely has a mental illness of some sort. If you have a family member who you could see get into this situation, contact us and we’ll help figure out your next step.


Florida resident Nicole Ann Mintner reportedly mixed Xanax and alcohol and as a result was found asleep behind the wheel Sunday (May 28). When police tried to arrest her, she justified her actions, telling officers, “Jesus drank wine and so did I.”

The New York Post reports Mintner, 45, was found inside her silver Dodge, hazard lights on and engine running. In an attempt to assess the situation officers asked her questions when she refused to remove her sunglasses. She slapped an officer on the shoulder twice, according to police. When the cops saw four empty bottles of sangria in the center console of her car, she admitted to drinking as well as popping a Xanax.

Police attempted to put her in the back of the police car after she was placed under arrest, but she “continuously” screamed, and on the way to the detention center threatened to urinate in the back seat of the patrol car. Click Here to Continue Reading
