OLD SAYBROOK, Conn. (AP/WTNH) — A Connecticut woman is facing multiple charges after police say she drove 25 mph on Interstate 95 while under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

56-year-old Leigh Meredith of Old Saybrook has been charged with driving too slowly, driving under the influence, and failure to drive in the proper lane.

Police say a state trooper doing speed enforcement saw Meredith driving over the Baldwin Bridge Thursday night with traffic backed up behind her. The bridge has a posted 65 mph speed limit.

The trooper pulled her over, and police say she failed field sobriety tests.

Meredith is scheduled to appear in court June 27.
