According to a police report obtained by a media outlet, a vehicle was pulled over by the police for making a U-turn at a red light around 4 a.m. yesterday. GloRilla, who admitted to drinking that night, claimed that she was capable of driving. The police conducted a field sobriety test which showed that GloRilla was unsteady on her feet. She was also asked to perform a series of DUI tests, including an eye-follow test, walk-and-turn, one-leg balance, and walking in a straight line.
