Police: Boise woman was on meth when she crashed into pole, tree

November 5, 2013 

— A Boise woman was charged with a felony DUI after police say she knocked down a power pole and hit a tree with her car Monday night.

Kimberly Jean Chambless, 54, crashed shortly before midnight on the corner of South Curtis and West Overland Road.

Officers at the scene said the suspect lost focus, talked rapidly, and showed signs of being impaired. Chambless also failed several field sobriety tests, police said.

A Drug Recognition Officer with the Idaho State Police found evidence that the woman was under the influence of methamphetamine and prescription pills.

Chambless, who has two previous DUI convictions from August 2006 and October 2013, was arrested and charged with a felony.

She is currently being held in the Ada County Jail on $100,000 bond.
