A Model Suspect

Woman allegedly performed model walk, asked for ‘Amanda rights’ during traffic stop

Sheryl Urzedowski on FacebookA 38-year-old Orland Park motorist is scheduled to appear in Cook County court Oct. 26 on a charge of driving under the influence of alcohol after allegedly mistaking part of her field sobriety test for a fashion show.

Orland Park Police said Sheryl A. Urzedowski of the 14700 block of Park Lane seemed to believe she was supposed to walk as though she was a model, during her 2 a.m. Sept. 9 sobriety test at the intersection of 159th Street and Wolf Road.

“She walked up and down the line with hands on her hips three additional times,” police wrote in the incident report.

The runway run-through allegedly occurred after Urzedowski offered to perform a gymnastics maneuver, police said.

Urzedowski, who allegedly made a left turn at a red light, is also charged with disregarding a traffic control device, driving 26-30 mph over the posted speed limit, following too close to another vehicle and improper lane usage.

She also pleaded with the arresting officer to read her “the Amanda rights,” the report said.

The Amanda Rights:
  • You have the right to be blonde.
  • Any blonde moment you experience can and will be used against you in the form of a blonde joke.
  • If you wish to be blonde but cannot afford to be so, a bottle of peroxide will be provided for you.
  • In your diminished capacity as a blonde, do you understand these rights as they have been read to you?
