A 30-year-old Boise woman accused of colliding with three cars on an Interstate 84 offramp Sunday night — and leaving the scene — was booked into the Ada County Jail on four misdemeanor charges, a Meridian police spokesman said Monday.
Pamella Lukenbill was charged with driving under the influence of intoxicants, resisting and obstructing officers, possession of drug paraphernalia and failure to appear in court on a prior citation.
Motorists called Ada County Emergency Dispatch to report a car driving recklessly and crashing into other vehicles at about 8:30 p.m., according to Meridian Police Lt. Mike De St. Germain. Details on the collision — or series of collisions — were not immediately available because the report had not been filed.
Investigating officers stopped Lukenbill near Locust Grove and Victory roads. Dressed in a bathrobe and flipflops, she was alone in the white passenger car.
An officer smelled alcohol on Lukenbill’s breath, and investigators found more than one open container of alcohol in her car, De St. Germain said. She was taken into custody on suspicion of DUI. She would not submit to a breath test, so the officers obtained a search warrant to draw her blood.
She gave investigators a false name, which resulted in the resisting and obstructing charge, De St. Germain said. The drug paraphernalia charge was the result of items that investigators said they found in her car.
