Incident #: 24-567

Location: 500 block of Howard Street

Date: February 17, 2024

Time: 10:17 pm

INFORMATION: While on routine patrol, officers were dispatched to the area of Dewey and Howard Street for the report of a possible intoxicated driver complaint. The complainant stated that they had been following a vehicle, described as a white GMC SUV, and the witnesses stated that they observed the vehicle swerving and nearly colliding with vehicles as they traveled down the road. Upon arrival to the area, the officers made contact with the witnesses and located the suspect vehicle parked in a nearby driveway in the 500 block of Howard Street. The officers approached the vehicle and noted that it was running with the headlights on, and as they approached, a female subject exited the driver’s side front seat. The officers stopped the driver and she initially refused to speak with the officers but later answered some of the questions. The officers noted that the driver had visibly red bloodshot eyes and slurred speech. The vehicle was noted as having heavy front-end damage, but at the time of the report, it was unclear where/when the accident(s) had taken place. The driver was asked if she had consumed any alcohol, and she said, “Yes, two”. The officer asked her to perform some standard field sobriety tests, and at the conclusion, it was determined that there was enough probable cause to place the suspect, a 37-year-old Oxford woman, under arrest for driving under the influence of alcohol. The suspect was processed and transported to the Washtenaw County Jail. The case remains open pending laboratory analysis by the Michigan State Police Crime Lab to determine the level of intoxication. The case will then be submitted to the Washtenaw County Prosecutor’s Office to determine what charges may be authorized.
