From Conway Police Department reports
Woman suspected of driving while intoxicated, taken to hospital
A 25-year-old woman was charged early Saturday morning on suspicion of driving while intoxicated.
According to an incident report, a Conway officer was driving behind the suspect around 2 a.m. Saturday when he noticed the woman was driving suspiciously. In his report, the officer notes the woman would drive 10 mph over the speed limit and then slow down to 10 mph under the speed limit. The officer also said the woman kept driving over the center line and then against the curb along Salem Road.
Once the officer turned his lights on to initiate a traffic stop, the 25-year-old woman pulled over onto the side of the road, with the passenger side wheel rested on top of the curb.
"The driver didn't appear to notice [being parked on the curb] because they never made an attempt to pull the car off the curb," the officer wrote in his report.
As the officer spoke with the woman, she attempted to hand him her debit card instead of her ID several times. Each time, the passenger in the vehicle would correct her, noting the woman needed to provide the officer with her ID.
According to the incident report, the woman said it was too cold and windy outside to participate in any Field Sobriety Tests. She also told the officer that she knew she'd drank too much that night and should have had her sister drive her.
In his report, the officer states he planned to take the woman to the police department so she could perform a few field sobriety tests out of the cold. However, she threw up in the back of his patrol unit and began to pass out so he opted to take the woman to the hospital. Once at the hospital, the woman passed out so the officer requested a search warrant for a blood sample to determine the woman's blood alcohol level.
According to the report, the officer left the woman's citation with hospital staff since he was uncertain when she would be released.
