VERO BEACH, Florida – A 28-year-old woman was arrested in Vero Beach on charges of disorderly intoxication after calling the Indian River County Sheriff’s Office and telling a dispatch operator she was scared for her life.

However, she told deputies “you need to leave” after they arrived.

Andrea Denise Gonsky of Vero Beach called 911 and told dispatch that she was scared for her life. She said her neighbor hit and choked her. Then, the neighbor allegedly threw her up against a wall.

When deputies arrived, Gonsky told them the call was a lie and a mistake. She said she was fine and that nothing happened.

“During this conversation, I could smell an alcoholic beverage coming from her; she was slurring her words and was swaying back and forth,” according to the report.

The deputy did not observe any markings on her neck, legs, or arms that would indicate that she had been choked or harmed in any way.

The deputy wanted to check her residence to be sure there was no other person present that might be forcing her to say she was fine. Gonsky agreed, but then changed her mind and told them to leave.

As other deputies arrived at the location, the deputy went to speak with them about the situation. However, Gonsky followed him back to the street and asked them all to leave.

“She became agitated with me, still slurring her words, telling me that I needed to leave, that the street was her property,” the report said.

EMS arrived due to the nature of the 911 calls, but she refused to be transported to the hospital. She then began to curse at the paramedics.

A neighbor stepped forward and said Gonsky went to his house with a bottle of vodka, but then she turned angry and punched him in the face. The neighbor faked a 911 call to scare her so that she would leave his residence.

Another neighbor spoke with deputies and said they were tired of her constant disruption in their neighborhood, “as this is her regular behavior when she is drinking,” the deputy’s report said.

Gonksky was arrested and transported to the Indian River County Jail.
