(La Porte County, IN) - A driver was allegedly caught while highly impaired in a heavily traveled area outside La Porte.
An officer spotted a vehicle pass through the intersection of Severs Road and U.S. 35 at a high rate of speed on Monday, as per La Porte County Police.
After getting behind the driver, police said, the officer witnessed the driver veer over the center line of Johnson Road several times. The speed of the vehicle was also rising and declining before being pulled over near Crichfield Elementary School.
During a traffic stop, 65-year-old Cynthia Miller allegedly told the officer she consumed "two beers."
However, the La Porte area woman’s alleged blood alcohol level was nearly three times the legal limit. A partially consumed half-pint bottle of tequila was reportedly found beside the driver’s seat.
