Occurred on 12/7 at 12:34 AM – Brookline Place
Officer Richards was heading east on Washington St. towards Brookline Ave. when he observed a vehicle on the opposite side of the road blocking one lane of traffic displaying emergency lights. When he pulled in, he noticed the driver standing on the sidewalk talking on her cell phone. Both the driver and passenger side airbags had been deployed on the vehicle, as she had struck a light pole. Fire and ambulance were dispatched to the area.
Richards attempted to question her as to what happened to cause the accident, but had difficulty because she was speaking very slowly and seemed to be having trouble formulating full sentences. He could also detect a strong odor of alcohol when she spoke.
The vehicle and the light pole had extensive damage on them. After further investigation, it was determined that she was Operating Under the Influence of Liquor and was subsequently arrested.
