On June 16th, 32-year-old Katherine Sharber was seen nearly running a stop sign in a black Volkswagen sedan on Cleveland Street. Officers observed this and ran the car’s license plate, revealing her registration had expired. After following Sharber, officers saw her drift to the right side of the road, nearly hitting the curb and then jerking back to the center. Officers made contact and noticed a strong odor of alcohol as they approached Sharber. While speaking to her, they observed a glass bottle in the center console. Officers asked Sharber if she had drunk any alcohol, and she admitted that she had had two beers two hours before she started driving. Sharber agreed to perform sobriety tests, but after performing them poorly, she was taken into custody and charged with driving under the influence. During an inventory search of her car, officers found two Miller Lite beer cans behind the passenger seat.
