Liberty Lake Police Blotter: Nearly nude woman arrested for DUI

A half-naked woman was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence after she reportedly caused a crash at Appleway Avenue and Molter Road the evening of Aug. 23.

Two people in two other cars were injured and taken to a local hospital, said Liberty Lake Police Chief Brian Asmus.

An officer approached the woman’s car and noticed that she didn’t have on a shirt or undergarments, Asmus said. Her blood alcohol level was so high that she was taken to the hospital for treatment before being booked into the Spokane County Jail, he said.
