BREWER, Maine — A Brewer woman who was pulled over for an expired registration was arrested on a charge of operating under the influence early Friday, police said.

Elham Khavari, 42, was traveling on South Main Street in the area of Cove Street just after midnight when Officer Tom Tardiff initiated the traffic stop, according to Brewer police Sgt. Tony Pinette.

Not only did Khavari’s vehicle have an expired registration, she was weaving along the roadway, the sergeant said.

Khavari failed field sobriety tests and Tardiff placed her under arrest and brought her to the Penobscot County Jail, Pinette said. She was later released on bail.
