20-year-old Kaleigh Reese Swift was jailed Monday morning after crashing into a utility pole on Church Street. A passenger of the vehicle stated that Swift was driving them home when she crashed and left the scene. Police conducted a welfare check on a female near 3rd Avenue and recognized her as the vehicle owner involved in the hit-and-run. She appeared to be intoxicated, smelled like alcohol, and was slurring her words. She didn’t remember the events leading up to the crash, nor did she remember the crash itself. She was stumbling around and stated several times that she didn’t remember anything before getting the boot off her car. Officers also noted that Ms. Swift had glassy eyes and dilated pupils. She stated that her cell phone was in her pocket, then proceeded to pull out a water bottle and try to dial a phone number. She described that her cell phone had a pink case with a butterfly drawn on it, which was found in the driver’s seat of the involved vehicle. Ms. Swift then performed poorly on sobriety tests and was taken into custody.
