A 33-year-old woman was arrested early Tuesday morning in connection with driving under the influence in downtown Evanston.

Officers spotted the Chicago resident driving without headlights or taillights in the 1000 block of Chicago Avenue, Evanston police Cmdr. Joseph Dugan said. When the woman pulled over, officers noticed that her eyes were watery and glassy, and that her breath smelled of alcohol.

Officers also noticed fresh vomit on the driver’s side door, Dugan said. After failing a standard field sobriety test, the woman was charged with driving while intoxicated and was also given a citation for driving without lights on when required.
