There's drunk and then there's this woman
York Regional Police claim a woman was so drunk at the wheel that she tried to get to the other side of the road by driving over a median on a flat tire.
Police say someone called in the bad road behaviour near Bayview Ave and Spring Farm Rd in Aurora at about 8:30 p.m. Saturday. Officers used their cruisers to block the path of the offending driver. Police found the car littered with boxed wine, one of the boxes emptied. Once at a police detachment the woman allegedly blew more than four times the legal limit for alcohol.
The unnamed 50-year-old Toronto woman faces charges.
She is one of nine impaired drivers nabbed by police in York Region over the weekend.
By the numbers:
-six men, three women caught
-five people caught by police on patrol or at RIDE checks
-two people arrested after crashes
-two people caught after concerned citizens called police
