Thompson RCMP were notified around 12:15 a.m. about a car parked crookedly in a driveway on Pintail Crescent. Police were told the driver had asked for directions and appeared to be impaired by alcohol.

Officers attended and stopped the driver, who failed a roadside screening test and later provided breath samples more than twice the legal limit for blood alcohol content. Police also determined that the woman was prohibited from driving anywhere in Canada and she was held in custody pending a court appearance.
