Police arrested a 33-year-old woman early Wednesday for driving under the influence.
Around midnight, police checked on a vehicle near Aluminum and Washington streets that appeared to be stuck in the snow. As they approached the car, they noticed Brianna Lucas dancing in the driver’s seat.
After speaking with Brianna Lucas, officers came to believe she was under the influence of some sort of stimulant. She was transported to the detention center and ran through a sobriety test, which police say she failed. Lucas then reportedly refused a Breathalyzer test, and officers allegedly also located two syringes on her person.
Lucas was cited for a number of misdemeanors, including DUI with refusal, possession of drug paraphernalia, careless driving, driving with a suspended or revoked license, and driving with no liability insurance.
