NORTH COVEN­TRY >> A 34-year-old East Nor­ri­ton wo­man is fac­ing her sixth drunken driv­ing charge and 11 other charges af­ter al­legedly driv­ing a car into a util­ity pole in Septem­ber.

The crash oc­curred on Sept. 1 in the 1000 block of East Schuylkill Road, where po­lice found a Kia Rio that had struck a util­ity pole and was block­ing a drive­way.

Po­lice found Ronita Rochelle Davis, of Rahway Av­enue, at the scene, although she al­legedly de­nied be­ing the driver of the car and gave po­lice what they ul­ti­mately de­ter­mined to be a fic­ti­tious name.

Po­lice, who de­tected an odor of al­co­hol, de­ter­mined that Davis was the driver, and un­cov­ered her real name, as well as find­ing drug para­pher­na­lia in her pos­ses­sion.

They also de­ter­mined that her in­sur­ance card was fraud­u­lent and home­made.

Davis was taken from the scene to Read­ing

Po­lice ob­tained a search war­rant for the records per­tain­ing to her care and re­cently re­ceived the re­sults show­ing Davis tested pos­i­tive for co­caine and had a blood-al­co­hol con­tent of 0.19 per­cent, said North Coven­try Po­lice Chief Robert Schurr.

Davis will be charged with one count of DUI (gen­eral im­pair­ment), one count of DUI (drugs com­bi­na­tion), one count of reck­less driv­ing, one count of road­ways laned for travel, two counts of pos­ses­sion of drug para­pher­na­lia, one count false ID to law en­force­ment, one count false re­ports, one count of driv­ers re­quired to have fi­nan­cial li­a­bil­ity in­sur­ance, one count of fraud­u­lent doc­u­ments, one count of in­sur­ance fraud and one count of driv­ing while un­der sus­pen­sion DUI re­lated with blood-al­co­hol count greater than 0.02 per­cent.
