Boise Police say an early morning felony DUI arrest highlights law enforcement's stepped-up efforts this New Year's Eve to stop impaired driving.
An officer on patrol at approximately 3 a.m. Tuesday morning saw a vehicle whose registered owner had a suspended license from a previous DUI. When the officer made contact with the driver, the officer could smell the odor of an alcoholic beverage and noticed the driver's eyes were glassy and bloodshot. The driver also failed field sobriety tests and blew a .098 blood alcohol level. The suspect had two prior DUIs, making the latest arrest a felony.
Christine Dilbeck, 43, of Boise was booked into the Ada County Jail on a felony count of DUI.
Boise Police also report that during a Dec. 30 traffic stop at North 13th and Front streets, an officer found two glass pipes with white powdery residue and a clear plastic baggie with white powdery residue, which both tested positive for methamphetamine.
Cody Bauer, 20, of Boise was charged with felony meth possession and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia.
