A Perry woman was arrested Tuesday night for alleged drunk driving after rolling her SUV and striking barbed wire fencing along Iowa Highway 144 north of Perry.
Yoana Arreola Adams, 29, of 2101 Lucida St., Perry, was charged with third-offense OWI, open container, driving under suspension, failure to maintain control and no insurance.
The incident occurred about 8:45 p.m. on 325th Street (Iowa Highway 144) just east of Clover Avenue (County Road P54) in Boone County.
The 2014 Dodge Durango sustained significant front-end driver’s-side damage, including a smashed windshield and sunroof and a crumpled quarter panel. A length of barbed wire was tangled in the vehicle, which came to rest on the shoulder of the northbound lane of 325th Street.
Adams submitted to a preliminary breath test, administered by a Boone County Deputy Sheriff, and she blew a .319. She also failed a series of field sobriety tests.
Adams is held in the Boone County Jail. She is scheduled for a preliminary hearing April 10 in Boone County District Court.
