In a continued effort during the "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over Campaign," local police are still cracking down on intoxicated driving. During a safety road check held at KY 259 and KY 70 at Hilltop, police say a woman came through the stop, showing obvious signs of driving while drunk.
Police said they administered field sobriety tests to the woman where she continued to show further signs of intoxicated driving, which resulted in her arrest.
Andrea Eastman, 30, of Brownsville, was charged with DUI first offense and Refusal of chemical test. She was transported and lodged in the Hart County Jail.
Sheriff Shane Doyle said the program has been good for Edmonson County. "Drunk driving is one of the leading causes of death in young adults," he said. "We want to make a maximum effort to ensure that those deaths don't happen here. I've secured grant money to fund the overtime for our officers during this campaign. The bottom line is, we want drunk drivers off our roads."
