INDICE DE GALERIAS
BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) — A woman is charged with felony drunken driving after police in Billings, Mont., say she called 911 and said she was too drunk to get out of her vehicle.
The Billings Gazette reports (http://bit.ly/1ebGHK8 ) 55-year-old Carol Frances Omeara made an initial appearance in Yellowstone County Justice Court on Wednesday. She remained jailed Thursday on $3,000 bond.
Omeara 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 say the caller replied that she was too drunk.
Prosecutors say Omeara's blood-alcohol level was 0.311 percent, 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.
