A Baldwin Township police officer stopped motorist Lauren L. Schutte, 23, of Ella Street in Pittsburgh's Bloomfield-Lawrenceville area, for speeding in the 100 block of McNeilly Road at around 1:48 a.m. on Saturday.
According to Baldwin Township police Chief Terrence P. O'Brien, the officer smelled alcohol coming from Schutte while she was pulled over at the nearby Busy Beaver on Route 88 in Pittsburgh's Overbrook neighborhood and reported that Schutte failed field-sobriety tests there.
She was arrested, charged with suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol and taken to the Mt. Lebanon police station for a blood test as part of Baldwin's cooperation with the Mt. Lebanon Area DUI Task Force. Results of that test are pending.
