SUMMARY OF INCIDENT: On 11/10/2016 at approximately 1717 hours, I observed a Subaru Outback commit a motor vehicle violation on Coventry Street in Newport City and I conducted a motor vehicle stop. While speaking with the operator, Sheila Macfarlane, I noticed she had bloodshot watery eyes and her speech was slurred. After investigation, I asked Macfarlane to perform Standardized Field Sobriety Exercises, which she performed. Macfarlane willingly provided a sample of her breath and her BAC was .201% at 1738 hours. Macfarlane was placed under arrest for Suspicion of DUI. Macfarlane was taken to the Vermont State Police Derby Barracks where she was processed, fingerprinted, and photographed. Macfarlane was given a citation and released.
