Ohio drunken driving suspect pulled self over

She thought she saw police lights, but the flashing lights were actually from a skating rink sign

Associated Press

SANDUSKY, Ohio — Police in Ohio can't take too much credit for stopping a woman they say was drinking and driving — they say she pulled herself over.

Officers in the Lake Erie town of Sandusky say the woman stopped because she thought she saw police lights, but it turns out the flashing lights were from a skating rink sign.

The Sandusky Register reports that the woman's car got stuck in a snowbank near the sign when she stopped early Monday and another motorist called police.
