BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) — A Montana woman who reportedly called 911 and said she was too drunk to get out of her vehicle has been charged with felony driving under the influence.
The Billings Gazette reported that 55-year-old Carol Frances Omeara made an initial appearance in Yellowstone County Justice Court 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 person is considered legally intoxicated.
Court records say Omeara has three previous DUI convictions and had the keys to the vehicle in her pocket.
