Sheriff’s Deputy Connor Sanford of the Sheriff’s Office STOP DWI Unit responded to the area and located the vehicle shortly thereafter on Avon Lima Road. Deputy Sanford affected a traffic stop on the vehicle and the operator identified herself as Brinkworth.

It was also learned that Brinkworth had a conviction for Driving While Intoxicated within the past 10 years, making this arrest a felony.
Brinkworth was arraigned in front of Avon Town Justice Torregiano and at that time she was remanded to the Livingston County Jail in lieu of $5,000 cash bail or $10,000 bond.
She will appear in Avon Town Court at a later date for further court process.
