On Jan. 1 around 2:40 a.m., the Rainy River District OPP conducted a traffic stop near Portage Avenue and First Street East.

After speaking with the driver, it was determined she had been drinking.

The driver, 31-year-old woman from Naicatchewenin First Nation, failed the roadside test and subsequently was arrested.

The vehicle was towed from the scene and impounded for seven days.

The driver was taken to the Fort Frances detachment and subsequently charged with driving with a blood alcohol level over 80 mg following the results of Breathalyzer tests.

She will appear in court here Feb. 1.
