BREWER, Maine — An Eddington woman was arrested last week on drug and drunk driving charges after the vehicle she was driving drifted into a lane that a Brewer police officer was driving in.

When Brewer police Officer Liz Kelley pulled the vehicle over on North Main Street shortly after 11 p.m. last Wednesday night, she suspected that the driver — 39-year-old Julie Ring — had been drinking, Brewer police Lt. Chris Martin said Wednesday, citing an arrest report.

As a result of Ring’s performance of field sobriety tests, Ring was arrested on a charge of operating under the influence, Martin said.

Martin said an inventory of Ring’s vehicle after the arrest turned up diverted pharmaceutical opiates as well as drug paraphernalia, which resulted in charges of Class B felony possession of scheduled drugs and possession of drug paraphernalia.
