A Tahlequah woman was arrested for driving under the influence after she struck a vehicle.
On Nov. 22, Officer Chase Reed responded to a crash near Boone Street and Lena Avenue. One of the people involved said the other driver was trying to flee, but they prevented that from happening. That driver, Cynthia Ullom, was parked at Tahlequah Medical Group, and according to Reed's report, she looked as though she had a hard time staying awake. Reed said when he had her roll down her window, he could smell alcohol. When he asked Ullom what happened, she said she couldn''t remember, but she needed to feed the cats at the vet clinic. The other driver said Ullom veered out of her lane and struck his vehicle. As Reed was sitting in his vehicle to write down the information, Ullom tried backing out of the parking lot. He had her get out of her vehicle and reported she was unsteady on her feet. Later on, the officer had Ullom perform a sobriety test and she was arrested.
