Semis block path of woman arrested for DUI

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Two semi drivers took action early Thursday morning when they blocked the path of a woman reportedly driving erratically on Interstate 71.

According to the arrest slip, officers were sent to I-71N after reports of a woman driving a black Buick with no wheel on one of the rims just before 2 a.m. Nov. 8.

By the time officers arrived at the scene, two semis had pulled in front of the Buick, blocking it and all northbound traffic. Police say the woman -- 31-year-old Miranda Works -- was passed out in the driver's seat.

When she was awakened, officers say Works "smelled of alcohol, had glossy eyes, and slurred speech."

She reportedly failed several field sobriety tests and a portable breathalyzer test indicated a blood alcohol level of 0.29.

Works was arrested and charged with driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs and reckless driving.
