It all started when a neighbor called police to report a suspected drunk driver. When police arrived they found a very sober driver who was in the middle of a much stranger problem.

A 49-year-old woman was employed as caregiver to an elderly couple. The man has Parkinson's Disease and the woman has multiple sclerosis. They got in a fight and the couple took off to cool off.

The neighbor saw the man walking funny (from the Parkinson's) and thought he was drunk, hence the 9-1-1 call.

When police arrived and heard the man's explanation they went to the front door and demanded the woman unlock it. There was no answer.

Upon achieving entry they discovered the caregiver hiding in the bathroom. She said diarrhea prevented her from opening the door. Once arrested she began screaming, stomping her feet and fighting.

In the patrol car she told the officers she had just needed some time to herself.
