CENTREVILLE — A Centreville woman was charged with driv­ing while in­tox­i­cated af­ter her ve­hcile was stopped for an equip­ment vi­o­la­tion Feb. 27, ac­cord­ing to the Queen Anne’s County Sher­iff’s Of­fice.

Dfc. An­drew Neall stopped a Toy­ota Rav 4 driven by Janet Lynn Pfis­terer, 62, on Route 304 near Safety Drive for an al­leged equip­ment vi­o­la­tion at 9:25 p.m. He no­ticed Pfis­terer had glassy eyes, slurred speech and a strong odor of al­co­hol on her, po­lice said. It took mul­ti­ple at­tempts for her to lo­cate her driver’s li­cense, Neall noted.

Pfis­terer first stated she had a med­i­cal con­di­tion and was re­turn­ing from Pitts­burgh, then later said she was com­ing from work and de­nied hav­ing any drinks, po­lice said.

At­tempts at sev­eral field so­bri­ety tasks in­di­cated she had been drink­ing, po­lice said. Prior to Pfis­terer be­ing ar­rested, a medic was re­quested to check her med­i­cal con­di­tion and she was found to OK, po­lice said. At that time she was placed un­der ar­rest and charged with DWI.

She was later re­leased to a sober driver.

A trial is sched­uled for June 5 in Queen Anne’s County Dis­trict Court.
