A woman from Bolingbrook, Illinois, is facing multiple charges after the police asserted that she was driving under the influence when she was pulled over for allegedly driving without a bumper on her vehicle.
Just after 3:00 am, officers from the Joliet Police Department reportedly saw a Hyundai Elantra being driven without bumpers, which are legally required. They initiated a traffic stop, and the female driver pulled to the side of the road.
An officer approached the driver’s side window, and when they first spoke with the woman, they alleged that she smelled like she had been drinking alcohol and showed several indicators of intoxication. They also reported that they saw open containers of alcohol inside the Elantra. She was asked to take a roadside sobriety test, and the woman reportedly consented.
