A College Station woman has been charged with DWI in connection with an April run-in with the police.

Back on April 29, the 23-year-old woman spun out of control and went into a ditch on Rock Prairie Road, according to witnesses who later called police.

Police could not find the woman at first, but they eventually located her in the bathroom of a nearby McDonald's restaurant. Although she refused to come out of a stall, officers could see that there were cuts on her legs and that her clothes were muddy, grass-stained and wet with an unknown liquid. In their arrest report, the responding officers noted that the woman was crying at the time.

The woman was eventually convinced to come out of the stall and was taken to College Station Medical Center. Unfortunately, she had to be restrained because she was showing an "aggressive attitude" towards medical personnel.

The results of the woman's blood-alcohol content test were returned Aug. 13. They showed that the woman had a blood-alcohol content of 0.165 at the time of the incident. In Texas, the legal limit is 0.08. Hence, she was charged with DWI. The charge she is facing a misdemeanor - felony DWIs are usually the result of an alleged repeat offense or when there is some aggravating factor, like having children in the car.

Although a DWI charge is nothing to joke about, we are glad this woman was not seriously hurt in the car accident.
