DRIVER STUCK IN SNOW IS CHARGED WITH DUI IN HARRINGTON
A 51-year-old Pennsylvania woman was charged with DUI and assorted other traffic offenses on Wednesday, Harrington police said.
Tara S. Jackson, of Devon, was charged with DUI, resisting arrest, driving without a license and driving the wrong way on a one-way street, said agency spokesman Sgt. Earl Brode.
Officers on patrol at about 11 p.m. spotted a car that appeared to be stuck on the snow on U.S. 13 near the railroad tracks.
An investigation determined that Jackson had been driving the wrong way on U.S. 13 prior to getting stuck.
When officers walked up to the car, they noticed an aroma of alcohol and tried to get Jackson out of the car, Brode said.
Brode said the she refused to get out to perform field sobriety field testing.
After a short struggle, officers were able to get her out and arrest her.
While at the police station, Jackson continued to be combative and uncooperative with the officers.
She was committed to the Sussex Correctional Institution after failing to post $2,300 secured bail.
