The caller reported to police dispatch that they had observed the vehicle swerving on the roadway and travelling in the marked parking lane. The caller also reported that the vehicle proceeded through a red light while in the downtown core. The caller stayed with the vehicle providing police dispatch with vehicle description, updated location and driving evidence until police arrived in the area.
Police located and stopped the suspect vehicle in the 200 block of 8 th Street East. A Standard Field Sobriety Test was conducted and as a result the 66 year old female driver was placed under arrest for impaired operation of a motor vehicle.
