Prescott Valley police arrested a woman Saturday on charges of DUI and criminal damage after she ran her sports utility vehicle into a home spa adjoining a house in the 500 block of Mission Lane.
At 2:13 a.m., officers answered a call about the collision and saw the SUV stopped about 10 feet from the home.
The homeowners told police they woke up to a loud noise, went outside and saw a SUV that had crashed into their spa. The SUV's driver was trying to leave but became stuck, so the homeowners asked the driver to come inside the house to see if she needed help. They then called police, said Sgt. Brandon Bonney, spokesman for the Prescott Valley Police Department.
Officers noticed that the driver, Atrina Sprague, 32, of Prescott Valley showed signs of impairment, so they took her back to the police station where she blew a 0.233 breath alcohol content - almost three times the legal limit.
Sprague told officers she had been drinking and should not have been driving, Bonney said.
An officer booked Sprague into the Yavapai County Jail in Camp Verde on charges of three counts of felony endangerment, one count of reckless driving, one count of felony criminal damage, four counts of DUI, including extreme DUI and DUI over .20.
