Woman calls 911 because she's trapped in her car. What kind of car was it?
...it really doesn't matter in this case.
A woman faces a felony drunken driving charge after police said she phoned 911 saying she was too drunk to get out of her vehicle.
The Billings Gazette reported Carol Frances Omeara, 55, was arrested Tuesday night after a woman called dispatchers and said she couldn’t get out of her vehicle.
The dispatcher asked if she was having medical or mechanical issues. Court records said the caller replied she was too drunk.
Prosecutors said Omeara’s blood-alcohol level was 0.311%, nearly four times the limit at which a driver is considered legally intoxicated.
The Billings woman had the keys to the vehicle in her pocket. Court records say Omeara has three previous DUI convictions.
She made an initial appearance in Yellowstone County Justice Court on Wednesday and remained jailed Thursday on $3,000 bond.
