A Hamlin woman was arrested Friday evening after allegedly driving on the wrong side of the interstate while intoxicated.
According to the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office, several 911 calls around 11:30 p.m. reported a vehicle driving the wrong way between Exits 8 and 9 on Interstate 390. Responding Deputy Shawn Whitford discovered a vehicle driven by Cynthia Harper, 58, head southbound in a northbound lane of the interstate. Dep. Whitford was able to travel parallel with Harper and get her to stop just south of Exit 8. Fortunately, no one was injured.
Whitford conducted a roadside DWI investigation, including field sobriety tests. As a result of the roadside tests, Harper was arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated, reckless driving, and driving the wrong way on a one-way street. Harper was then taken to the Livingston County Jail where she was given a breathalyzer test. Harper registered a .14% BAC (blood alcohol content).
Harper was turned over to Central Booking Deputies at the Livingston County Jail for processing and pre-arraignment detention.
