A woman was recently arrested for driving under the influence (DUI) in Maryland after striking multiple vehicles intentionally and then resisting arrest. The incident occurred on Tuesday, March 6 in Faulkner. She is facing multiple charges following the arrest. According to a news report, the woman is 43 and from the area where the incident occurred.

After the woman was placed under arrest, she was able to slip her hands out of the handcuffs applied by the arresting officer. When she got out of the handcuffs, she tried to use her cellphone while in the back of the officer’s vehicle. When the officer pulled to the side of the road to get the suspect back into custody, she tried to grab the computer in the front.

The suspect was successful in grabbing the computer and a pen and used the pen to break the computer, according to the Maryland State Police. The incident first began when the suspect drove her Toyota Corolla off the road and into an embankment. The investigation found that the suspect was under the influence, which led to her arrest.

Two calls were made to police reporting the suspect for intentionally hitting their cars in two different areas. Those areas include La Plata and Pomfret. Both callers said the suspect hit their cars multiple times.

Facing a drunk driving charge can be daunting, especially if it is not your first one. You will want to do everything possible to avoid the loss of your license, which can harm your chances of keeping a job in Gaithersburg. It’s best to seek help immediately after being arrested for DUI so you can keep your license as long as possible.
