A 29-year-old Chicago woman was arrested early on the morning of Jan. 9 after she crashed her vehicle into a parked car near Circle Avenue and Jackson Boulevard.
Forest Park police responded to the scene of a two-vehicle crash around 3:20 a.m. and found a woman in the driver’s seat of one of the vehicles with “an odor of alcohol emitting from her person” and bloodshot, glassy eyes. The woman told police a child was in the back seat of the car, but closer inspection revealed she was the vehicle’s only occupant. The second vehicle was found unoccupied.
After taking the woman to an ambulance, officers asked the woman how much she had been drinking and she responded, “so much.” She was then transported to the hospital where a breath sample was taken, revealing a blood alcohol content of .232, nearly three times the legal limit to operate a vehicle.
The woman has been charged with driving under the influence.
This information was obtained from police reports filed by the Forest Park Police Department. Unless otherwise indicated, anybody named in these reports has only been charged with a crime. These cases have not been adjudicated.
