A 34-year-old woman who passed through a police checkpoint on JA Cochran Bypass in Chester during the early morning hours of July 25 reportedly did so with an open container of beer and children in her car. When police stopped the woman at the checkpoint, they noticed a strong smell of alcohol coming from her car and asked if there was an open container in the vehicle.
The woman reportedly admitted that there was an open container and handed an officer a 25-ounce can of Busch Ice. After giving the officer the can of beer, she was asked to perform field sobriety tests, and they said that her performance indicated that she was under the influence of alcohol. She was then taken into custody and transported to the Chester County Law Enforcement Center, and it was reported that she refused to give a breath sample while there.
