Woman arrives at court for DUI smelling of alcohol

MILTON, Ga. (AP) - Lauren Nicole Smith made the wrong move when
she went to court to answer a charge of driving under the influence.

The 28-year-old woman from Milton showed up with alcohol on her breath, drawing a two-day sentence from Municipal Court Judge Barry
Zimmerman for contempt of court.

She showed up on time at 10 a.m. Friday. During a routine check for weapons at the door, Bailiff George Gordon detected a whiff of
alcohol.

Police charged her with DUI Sept. 12 when officers found her parked in the middle of the road and she couldn't figure how to
open her car door.

Her blood-alcohol level was .34, well above the legal limit for driving of .08.

Her DUI case was continued to a court date in June.
