Woman in Michigan faces OWI/DUI charges

A woman in Galesburg has been charged with operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol, following an alleged altercation the morning of Dec. 26. Local police arrested the Michigan woman, who has been charged with OWI/DUI as a result of the investigation. So far, no court date has been announced, and it is unclear whether she has retained defense counsel at this time. 

According to the police report, the 26-year-old woman contacted officers around 1:45 a.m. When they found her, she said she had been attacked by a woman wielding pepper spray. Officers on the scene said her eyes were bloodshot, and they detected the scent of alcohol on her breath. Police began interviewing witnesses to determine exactly what happened, whereupon they were informed that the woman had arrived at a dinner party and began attacking another guest. 

Apparently, the assaulted woman attempted to defend herself with pepper spray before fleeing the party. The 26-year-old woman reportedly followed her in her vehicle, running over a fire hydrant in the process. Police later found the hydrant under her car. The woman was arrested and taken to a Public Safety Building for a sobriety test, which police say she failed. She now faces charges of DUI, criminal damage to fire fighting equipment, battery and aggravated assault. 

In cases of this type, it can be easy for witness accounts to become fragmented. This is why it is up to Michigan prosecutors to prove the woman was guilty of OWI/DUI and the other charges filed against her. In the meantime, the woman's defense team will carefully review witness statements to ensure the veracity of the story being told in court.
