Milwaukee sheriff's officials say Trimboli flashed her badge to the officer, and asked that she be let go as a "professional courtesy."  Her blood alcohol level was point-14 on a breath test -- almost twice the legal limit of point-zero-eight. 

Red Wing Police released her after she was booked on her first DWI offense, and she faces a criminal misdemeanor charge in Minnesota.  Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke says asking for a pass -- aggravated an already-bad situation -- and she'll be dealt with appropriately if convicted.
