A Phoenixville woman was arrested last week after East Pikeland Police say an employee at her mother’s assisted living facility called them to report that she was driving drunk.
According to court documents, the woman, 64-years-old and a resident of the 900 block of Lincoln Road, was at Sunrise Assisted Living on October 24 sometime before 2:49 p.m. visiting her mother when employees observed that she was intoxicated.
The employees tried to stop the woman from driving home, taking her keys at one point, but she ran past them, got in her car and left anyway; they believe with a spare key.
One of the employees called police, who met the woman at her Lincoln Road home. When they arrived she was swaying outside in her driveway, visibly intoxicated, and appeared to have urinated in her pants. She also had a red mark on her head, as though she had just taken a fall.
The woman refused to submit to field sobriety testing. She was placed under arrest and taken to Phoenixville Hospital to have blood drawn for testing.
