A Mount Prospect woman was pulled over in west Evanston early Thursday morning and arrested in connection with driving under the influence.

At 2:00 a.m., the 32-year-old woman was stopped in the 2000 block of Emerson Street for driving erratically, Evanston police Cmdr. Joseph Dugan said. When the woman pulled over, she almost hit a parked car, Dugan said. Officers reported the woman had the scent of alcohol on her breath, and her eyes were bloodshot and glassy.

She told officers that she had been drinking, and they conducted a field sobriety test, which she failed, Dugan said. She was then taken into custody and charged with driving while under the influence of alcohol.

Her court date is set for May 17 in Skokie.
