Woman accused of driving while intoxicated

A 50-year-old Chatham woman is charged with impaired driving after backing into a police cruiser.

Police said officers were called about a possibly impaired driver around 10 p.m. on Monday.

An officer on general patrol went to pull over the vehicle but police said the driver put her vehicle in reverse and ended up hitting the cruiser. She was taken to police headquarters for a breath test and held in custody until sober. The 50-year-old is charged with having a blood alcohol concentration exceeding the legal limit.

No one was hurt during the incident but there was some minor damage to the cruiser.

Pair charged following failed theft

A man and a woman who were supposed to stay away from each other are facing charges following an attempted theft.

Police said video surveillance captured a man trying to steal money from a coin machine at a car wash in Wallaceburg. Police said the man in the video had been with a woman at the time and the two left in separate vehicles in the same direction.

Officers later learned that both people had been under court-ordered conditions to not have contact with each other.

A 31-year-old Dresden man is now charged with attempt theft, driving while prohibited, driving while under suspension, breaching his probation order, and being in possession of a stolen license plate. Meanwhile, a 26-year-old Dresden woman is charged with breaching her probation order. She has a future court date of December 20.
