Ore. police make DUI arrest in the station

By The Associated Press

NEWPORT, Ore. — The Oregon State Police didn't have to do much when they arrested a woman for allegedly drunken driving. She came to them.

Troopers charged a 42-year-old private contractor with driving under the influence of intoxicants after she came to work to clean the state police office in this coastal town.

A trooper said she showed signs of being intoxicated after driving to the office with her 12-year-old son. A blood-alcohol test showed her level was 0.19 percent -- more than twice the legal limit.

She also was charged with recklessly endangering another person and was jailed in lieu of $15,000 bail. A trooper transported her son home.
