Woman arrested for DUI after griping to police
DENVER — (AP) -- Police in a Denver suburb say a woman was arrested for drunken driving after she complained to officers about how they parked their patrol cars as they were investigating a DUI-related crash.
Trevor Materasso of Westminster police told KMGH-TV that 49-year-old Katherine Morse was taken into custody after she walked up to police trying to move a car in the crash Sunday.
Materasso says police had parked their cars to prevent a suspected drunk driver in the crash from leaving the scene. He says officers told Morse to return to her car and she became "belligerent with them, telling them it was a stupid place" for a traffic stop.
Materasso says that's when officers realized "she too was drunk."
Morse also faces obstructing police charges.
