Driver's Bar Commute Ends with OWI Arrest

(La Porte County, IN) - Police say a badly weaving driver trying to make it home 60 miles away was arrested in La Porte County on suspicion of drunk driving.


28-year old Eunice Arroyo was all over the roadway Sunday before sunrise on Interstate 94, and once she veered onto U.S 20, according to the La Porte County Sheriff's Office. Police said she nearly hit a guard rail before pulling over at Gallops Marathon at Indiana 39 in Springville, opened her door, and began vomiting.


The investigation's preliminary findings revealed she was at a bar in Gary and on her way home to South Bend.


LaPorte County Police got involved in removing the suspected intoxicated driver off the roads at the request of Indiana State Police handling another call. Arroyo was charged with drunk driving for refusing a portable breathalyzer test and a certified blood-alcohol test.


According to police, the combative woman in another act of rebellion removed her seat belt, raised her skirt, and urinated on the now saturated seat of the arresting officer's police vehicle. Arroyo was also charged with driving on a suspended license.
