According to the criminal complaint, Rangel’s blood alcohol level was .307 and she had difficulties answering the police officer’s questions about the origin of the blood on her hands. She denied she had been drinking.
The 25-year-old mother’s only recollection of the day was a desire to take her children on a walk because it was “football day,” she told a child protection worker.
