30-year-old Ashton Grams was arrested for driving under the influence after being involved in a vehicle crash at the intersection of Fairland Avenue and Fain Street on July 7th. Officers responded to a rollover accident and found Grams and her four children outside the overturned vehicle. The vehicle’s tags were suspended, and officers discovered an empty can of Bud Light on the vehicle’s passenger side. Grams confessed to driving the overturned vehicle and admitted that the beer can was hers, claiming she had not consumed alcohol since the previous day at noon. Officers then conducted a sobriety test, which Grams agreed to, but she performed poorly and exhibited signs of impairment. Additionally, officers noticed Grams had bloodshot, constricted, and glassy eyes. During police questioning, officers detected the smell of alcohol coming from Grams. Grams informed officers that the Bud Light can was half full in the vehicle, but it spilled on her. Grams also admitted that she did not have insurance for the car. The four children in the vehicle were 8, 6, 5, and 5 months old. The 5-month-old and 5-year-old were in car seats, while the 8-year-old and 6-year-old were not. Officers observed cuts on the 8-year-old and 6-year-old before learning that Grams had a suspended driver’s license. Grams stated that she was driving at 35 mph when she collided with a parked trailer she didn’t see. Grams then hit a nearby parked truck, causing significant damage and totaling both the truck and trailer. Grams was taken into custody for driving on a suspended license, driving an unregistered vehicle, DUI, open container of alcohol, lack of insurance, and four counts of child endangerment.
