A woman who decided not to employ usual routes of transportation found herself arrested at a local bar where she’d parked her vehicle in two handicap spaces.
On Tuesday, Oct. 2, 2018, police were called to the Invista Centre on Gardiners Road at approximately 11 p.m. Witnesses there reported that a vehicle had driven over the concrete curb and across the soccer field.
The responding officer located the vehicle parked sideways across two handicap spaces at a nearby bar, and the vehicle had grass jammed in the front end, according to a press release from Kingston Police.
Officers located the female driver inside the bar and observed that she was impaired. She was arrested and taken to Kingston Police Headquarters, where she provided two breath sample. The woman was found to have approximately three-and-a-half times the legal limit of alcohol in her system.
The 34-year-old Odessa woman is charged with impaired driving and operating a vehicle with over 80mg of alcohol in her system. Her driver’s licence was automatically suspended for 90 days, and she will face a one-year suspension if convicted. The vehicle was seized and impounded for seven days, and the woman will be responsible for all related fees and fines.
