Drunk driving charge filed against North Carolina woman

Law enforcement has arrested a Dunn, North Carolina woman and she now faces a drunk driving charge. She was originally pulled over for suspected driving while impaired and in the process of the traffic stop, she backed into a patrol car. She was arrested on a drunk driving charge and is under a $1500 bond.

The driver was tailed by police after a concerned North Carolina citizen reported an erratic driver. The woman was swerving from lane to lane before she was pulled over by police. While it was not indicated what the results of the Breathalyzer test were, the driver was immediately arrested when she hit the police car on suspected DUI. At that point, there was sufficient evidence to bring a drunk driving charge.

The woman facing the drunk driving charge denied being under the influence when approached by police. According to police, there was a strong smell of alcohol wafting from the car. They also noticed additional alcohol in the car when they stopped the driver.

The police officer that was searching the vehicle was injured on his right side when the woman backed her vehicle into the police car. A North Carolina State Patrol officer will be completed the investigation of the scene. The drunk driving charge was filed immediately after she was taken into custody.

There is no indication if the driver has any previous criminal charges or a previous drunk driving charge. She will make a court appearance to answer for her charges and find out what the next step is this process. No matter her behavior behind the wheel, she is considered innocent of all charges until she is proven guilty in a court of law.
