An 18-year-old woman from Knaresborough is due to appear in court charged with being more than three times over the drink-drive limit.

Olivia Ann Salmons was arrested at 1am yesterday (Wednesday, January 31) after police on patrol spotted a broken down blue Peugeot 307 estate on Cemetery Road in York.

According to North Yorkshire Police, the front nearside of the car was badly damaged and the driver failed a roadside breath test.

At the police station, she provided an evidential sample of 107 micrograms of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath — the legal limit is 35 micrograms.

Ms Salmons is due to appear at York Magistrates’ Court on February 29, charged with drink-driving.

She was released on bail ahead of the court appearance.
