A Schuylkill County driver is facing a charge of driving under the influence following an incident that occurred about 11:50 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 1, along Wade Road, in the area of Darkwater Road, in New Castle Township.

State police at Frackville said a patrol unit stopped at the above location to check on a vehicle stopped along the side of the road.

The driver was identified as Jessica K. Davis, 20, of Girardville. She said she had pulled over because her passenger had become ill.

Davis showed signs of intoxication and failed field sobriety tests.

She was then transported to the barracks for a breath test, which showed she was over the legal limit of .08 percent, troopers said.

DUI and related counts will be charged, troopers added.
