DUI_Patrol_02Alaska State Troopers were called to the scene of a motorist stuck in the mud along the Seward Highway on Thursday, that response turned into a DUI/DWLR arrest.

At 7:20 pm on Thursday, troopers were called to the scene after a passerby stopped to render assistance to a woman who had gotten her vehicle mired in the mud at mile 54 of the Seward Highway. When the passerby saw that the female driver was impaired, they reported the situation to troopers.

When troopers arrived, they found that in fact, the driver identified as 33-year-old Lacy Williams of Anchorage, was impaired by alcohol. When a further investigation was done, they found that Williams was driving on a revoked license.

Williams was arrested for DUI and DWLR and her vehicle was impounded. She was taken to the Girdwood Post, where she refused to supply a sample of her breath to troopers, and so was charged with Refusal as well.

Troopers transported Williams to the Anchorage Correctional Complex where she was remanded on the three charges. Her bail was set at $1,100.
