Sunday, May 3, 2009

FREMONT, Neb. -- Police say a woman arrested in Nebraska on suspicion of drunken driving hit fences, garages and a house as she left a $26,000 trail of damage.

Sgt. Ed Watts said the woman's car struck a fence while she was trying to turn into an alley Thursday night. He says the car next hit a utility pole and then a garage while trying to turn into it. Wyatt said the car then crossed a yard, rammed a fence and hit a house and garage.

Police said they arrested 58-year-old Janis Brown, who posted a $200 bond and was released from jail. Authorities say the woman's car also had about $5,000 in damages.

Attempts to reach Brown for comment Friday were unsuccessful. There is no public listing for her phone number.
