Abramson at first did not pull over to the side of Church Lane when police were following her with lights and sirens on. After police got backup, they were able to get Abramson to stop her 2014 GMC. When asked why she didn't pull over, she said she didn't know what to do when being followed by a patrol car with flashing lights and sirens on. Police noticed her breath smelled of alcohol while she was talking. When asked to produce her driver's license, Abramson gave police a medical ID card and a business card for dog grooming services. Then she said she could not find her license. She was travelling with a child in a booster seat. Her car was damaged, as noted by police. While speaking with Abramson at the scene of the traffic stop, police received information that the GMC had been in an accident and that Abramson left the scene of the accident. Abramson denied drinking any alcohol. She failed field sobriety tests. An alco-sensor test indicated a blood alcohol level of .179.
