Pennsylvania woman facing drunk driving charges

A woman in Kittanning may be in danger of being charged following a traffic stop on Route 66. Pennsylvania State Police reportedly pulled over and arrested the woman on the night of Sept. 14. While they have not yet formally charged the woman with drunk driving, police spokespeople seem confident charges will soon be filed against her. 

According to the report, the 29-year-old woman, whose name has not been released publicly, was on Route 66 when she was pulled over by a Pennsylvania State Trooper. The trooper justified the stop by noting the woman's vehicle appeared to be weaving, though it is unclear whether this is the trooper's estimation of the situation or the report of eyewitnesses. The woman was pulled over just before 9 p.m. 

The report goes on to say the woman was determined to be under the influence, though it omits how this determination was reached. If there was a roadside sobriety test conducted, the report did not mention it. A blood test was taken at a later time, which has been sent to toxicology for examination. Police believe the results will justify a drunk driving charge. 

However, even lab results are not always accurate in drunk driving cases. There are any number of factors that could impact alcohol testing, including the procedures used -- or not used -- by the personnel administering and processing a blood draw or breath test. With so many variables and so much on the line, an accused individual typically benefits by securing experienced criminal defense representation at the very first opportunity.
