The incident happened around 7 p.m. on New Year’s Eve when 56-year-old Veronica Lorna Timmons was at the wheel of a Ford passenger vehicle. She was pulled over at a travel center when police found her with a whiskey bottle between her legs.
Lorna immediately denied that she had been drinking from the Whiskey bottle. Police noted that her eyes were red at the time of the arrest but she claimed that she had been crying after getting into an argument with her daughter.
Timmons was unable to complete field sobriety tests because she claimed she had a ‘bad knee’ and, when she provided breath samples, it showed that she was intoxicated.
Timmons was arrested on driving under the influence charges.
