WILLIMANTIC, Conn. (WTNH) — A 39-year-old woman was arrested Sunday after she crashed her car and police found her blood alcohol level to be four times the legal limit.
Neighbors called police after Jacqueline Steinberg crashed her car into two parked cars at about 5 p.m. on Spring Street. Officers found Steinberg stopped a short distance from the crash while still driving on Prospect Street.
Police say they arrested Steinberg after she registered a blood alcohol content of .332 percent and failed to complete field sobriety tests.
“A BAC this high is fairly uncommon and is one of the top 5 highest I have seen here in the past 19 years,” said Corporal Stanley Parizo Jr. in a statement. “It is irresponsible for anyone to get behind the wheel of a vehicle impaired, but this border lines on egregious behavior with a BAC this high.”
There were no injuries in the crash.
Steinberg faces charges for driving under the influence, evading responsibility, and failure to drive right. She was held on a $1,500 bond.
