HOLDEN, Maine — Police arrested a Bangor woman early Friday morning and charged her with driving under the influence after a traffic stop on U.S. Route 1A.

Holden police Officer Bruce Graybill stopped a vehicle driven by Diana Miller, 58, after he clocked it traveling at 69 mph in a 45 mph zone, Police Chief Gene Worcester said Friday afternoon.

“The officer, when he approached the vehicle, smelled the odor of intoxicants,” Worcester said.

Miller failed a field sobriety test, according to Worcester, and was taken to the Penobscot County Jail in Bangor, where an breathalyzer test revealed she had a blood alcohol level of 0.12.
