Enid woman is charged with child endangerment

ENID, Okla. — A 41-year-old Enid woman has been charged with child endangerment by driving under the influence and aggravated DUI following a traffic stop Feb. 13 with her 13-year-old son in the car.

Burgaline Royce, also known as Burgaline Resendiz, is facing up to four years imprisonment and/or a fine of up to $5,000 on the child endangerment charge and 10 days to a year in jail and a fine of up to $1,000 on the aggravated DUI charge.

According to an affidavit filed in her case, at 3:44 a.m. Feb. 13, Enid Police Department Officer Robert Fleer saw headlights on the west side of Rainbow Sports, 2610 W. Garriott. The business does not have a road on its west side and Fleer saw a car driving on the grass southbound.

The car was traveling on an area not much wider than a car, and to the west was a drainage ditch. Fleer turned around and went into the parking lot and found the car was stuck attempting to enter the parking lot.

The driver’s side front tire was stuck between curbs of the parking lot, which was preventing the car from sliding into the ditch, according to the affidavit. The front tires were rotating but were not able to gain any traction.

Fleer ran to the vehicle, opened the door and shut off the engine.

Fleer noted in the affidavit a “strong odor of alcohol” inside the vehicle along with a woman, a young boy and a man asleep in the back seat.

Fleer spoke to the driver, Royce, who said she had left a party on Oakcrest Road and was driving home on the back roads to her home on West Elm and got lost, according to the affidavit. Fleer asked Royce if she had been drinking, and she said she had. When asked how much she drank, she replied, “A lot,” according to the affidavit.

Royce said her 19-year-old and 13-year-old sons were in the vehicle with her, according to the affidavit. Fleer noted Royce had slurred speech, red and watery eyes, and an odor of alcohol on her breath. Fleer also noted Royce had trouble standing in one place while speaking to him.

Royce was placed under arrest and had to be assisted in walking to a patrol car, according to the affidavit.

Fleer followed the tracks from Royce’s vehicle and found it traveled west of the intersection of Roosevelt and Everitt and turned south as it approached the drainage ditch.

The results of Royce’s two breath tests at the Garfield County Detention Facility were both 0.19, according to the affidavit.

Online court records show Royce is free on $10,000 bond.
