Woman too drunk to get out of car calls 911

Responsible drink driving?

A WOMAN HAS been charged with drink driving after she rang 911 and said she was too drunk to get out of her car.

The Billings Gazette reports that 55-year-old Montana woman Carol Frances Omeara was arrested on Tuesday night after she 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.

She made an initial appearance in Yellowstone County Justice Court on Wednesday and remained jailed yesterday on $3,000 bond.

Court records say Omeara has three previous DUI convictions.
