A South Milwaukee woman was arrested in Washington County on Sunday evening, April 3 for allegedly driving the wrong way on US 45 while intoxicated. Officials say the woman, 31, had her 2-year-old child in the car. 

The initial 911 caller reported the wrong-way driver going northbound in the southbound lanes of US 45 about a half-mile mile north of State Highway 33/West Washington Street at about 8 p.m. Sunday.

At some point, the suspect driver turned around and was observed by a deputy driving shoulder-to-shoulder near Mile View Road. The driver was stopped and failed field sobriety testing. The woman had a preliminary breath test of .268 – more than three times the legal limit.
