When they arrived they located the vehicle and conducted a traffic stop. During the stop, troopers made contact with the driver and identified her as 35-year-old Tracy Houser of Anchorage. Also in the vehicle as a passenger was her 10-year-old child.

Seeing that she was impaired, troopers took Houser into custody for DUI processing. When they did so, they would find that she had a breath alcohol concentration of over four times the legal limit.
