RE: Woman arrested for Excessive DUI after Sunday afternoon crash
Last Sunday afternoon at approximately 2:45pm, Bonneville County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to a vehicle crash at the intersection of 25th E. and John Adams Pkwy where it was reported a female involved was possibly intoxicated and trying to leave the scene. Deputies arrived and detained the female, 45 year old Sherrie D. Cheney of Idaho Falls, and determined she had been driving a vehicle involved in the crash.
Ms. Cheney admitted to Deputies she had been drinking alcohol and agreed to take a breath test on scene. The results of that test showed Ms. Cheney was impaired to a level more than three times the legal limit.
Deputies completed the crash investigation, which fortunately resulted in only minor damage to vehicles and no injuries. Ms. Cheney was issued a citation at the scene for Excessive Driving Under the Influence (DUI), a Misdemeanor.
The Bonneville County Sheriff’s Office reminds those who choose to drink or use intoxicating substances to do so responsibly, and never get behind the wheel of a motor vehicle, motorcycle, ATV, or boat. If you suspect someone of being too impaired to drive contact your local Law Enforcement to respond.
