Louisville Woman Accused Of Drunk Driving After Landing Her Car Into The Ohio River
37-year-old Shannon Stelzer of Louisville was arrested early Sunday morning by the police after she was accused of driving drunk and landing her car in the Ohio River.
The Louisville Metro Police Department arrested Stelzer at around 3:20 a.m. after she was seen driving her green 2008 Scion into the river at Cox Park by witnesses. One of the witnesses pulled Stelzer out of her car. The arrest report stated that the witness who pulled her out literally “saved her life.”
When authorities arrived at the scene, they issued numerous sobriety tests which Stelzer failed. She failed to maintain balance and had trouble walking.
The arrest citation also stated that Steler told the authorities that she had been drinking earlier in the day.
“The listed subject said she had two beers at her work and does not remember how she got to the park much less the river,” the arrest citation said.
Stelzer was charged with “operating a motor vehicle with alcohol concentration of or above 0.08.” Her arraignment is scheduled for Monday morning.
