A 30-year-old Sulphur Springs woman was arrested on a Class A misdemeanor driving while intoxicated charge following an investigation into a traffic crash, according to arrest reports.
Sulphur Springs police responded to a complaint of a crash. On contact with the woman at 10:16 p.m. Thursday, officers reported smelling a strong alcohol odor emitting from her breath. She also was alleged to be unsteady on her feet, spoke with slow slurred speech and had bloodshot eyes.
Due to the inclement weather at the time, police did not conduct field sobriety tests. Instead she was taken to the county jail, where she tested 0.265 and 0.272 on breath tests, more than three times the legal 0.08 limit. She was charged with DWI with a blood-alcohol reading of more than 0.15, according to arrest reports.
The woman was released from the county jail on $2,000 bond on the DWI charge Thursday morning, according to jail reports.
