Woman Who Drove on Wrong Side of Road to be Charged with DUI

Police said the woman had a .165 blood alcohol level.

Cecil police are charging a township woman with being incapable of safe driving and driving under the influence after officers said she was driving on the wrong side of the road last week.

Katherine White, 51, of Cecil-Henderson Road, was driving west on Baker Road Thursday night when police said she approached the crest of a hill and drifted into the left lane.

Police said she stayed in the wrong lane until an officer activated his overhead lights to initiate a traffic stop.

When approached by the officer, White could not locate her license and registration information, police said.

The officer noted that the woman's movement was slow, that her speech was "mumbled" and that the smell of alcohol emanated from her.

White admitted to having two drinks, police said.

When police asked her to step out of the vehicle, she was unsteady on her feet and a field sobriety test reportedly showed signs of impairment.

White was taken into custody on suspicion of DUI and administered a breath test at the Cecil Township police department.

That test showed that White had a .165 percent blood-alcohol content.

Charges will proceed by summons.
