Sulphur Springs police were dispatched at 11:08 p.m. July 27 to what was reported as a vehicle crash in the 1200 block of College Street. Officers located the woman, who had reportedly been driving her car east on College Street, where it went through two yards then struck a tree.

Officers alleged alcohol could be smelled on her breath and she exhibited signs and indicators of intoxication, including having slurred speech, being very unsteady oh her feet, stumbling and having bloodshot eyes.

Police reported finding an open Gentleman Jack Whiskey bottle in the car, with about 3/4 of the liquid in the container missing. She allegedly admitted to consuming over half of its contents, then failed all field sobriety tests given. At the jail, she agreed to a blood draw for testing. She was alleged to be uncooperative upon arrival at the jail, resulting in her being placed into a V-cell.

She was released from jail Sunday on $1,000 bond on the Class B misdemeanor driving while intoxicated with open container charge, according to jail reports.
