Centreville woman charged with DWI
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.
