The Compass - - Editorial -

The Whitbourne RCMP said a woman put her car off the road af­ter driv­ing im­paired east of Whitbourne last week and then threat­ened po­lice.

Tues­day, Aug. 28, around 11:40 p.m., Whitbourne RCMP re­ceived a com­plaint of a sin­gleve­hi­cle crash on the Trans Canada High­way.

Po­lice at­tended the scene and found a ve­hi­cle in the me­dian. A 35-year-old woman was ar­rested for im­paired op­er­a­tion.

Breath sam­ples were ob­tained nearly twice the le­gal limit and while in cus­tody, the woman threat­ened to harm po­lice, the RCMP say.

She now faces charges of im­paired op­er­a­tion, im­paired op­er­a­tion with blood al­co­hol over 80 mgs and ut­ter­ing threats.

She will be in court Oct. 31.
