A 19-year-old Kuna woman who drove her car into a tree Monday morning in a South Ada County neighborhood while being intoxicated didn’t have to go to the hospital —like her passenger did – but did go to jail.
Deputies charged Brea P. Woods with a misdemeanor count of excessive DUI in connection with the crash. Woods registered a blood alcohol content (BAC) level of .326 – which is four times the legal BAC limit of .08 for driving in Idaho.
Woods’ passenger, a 20-year-old woman, was taken to a local hospital for treatment.
Deputies were sent to S. Galewood Way, in the Maple Grove/Lake Hazel roads neighborhood, just after 11:30 a.m. Monday to check out a report of Kia Optima driving into a tree.
Deputies found Woods was out of the car, and detected a strong smell of alcohol coming from her. Shortly after that she failed field sobriety tests and was taken to the jail, where she took a breath test and was then arrested.
Woods was released from jail after posting bond Monday afternoon. She is set to make her initial court appearance Thursday.
