Boardman police charge Youngstown woman with OVI and resisting arrest

Posted: Updated:

BOARDMAN, Ohio - A 61-year-old woman who was arrested for drunk driving after crashing her car has been identified.

Jacquelin Midgett swerved off Brookwood Avenue in her Jeep, struck a fire hydrant, and came to stop in a front yard just south of Mill Creek Drive at approximately 3:30 p.m. Saturday.

According to a release, the police officer on scene asked Midgett to exit the vehicle and asked her if she had anything to drink. She replied, "I sure did, I can't remember how many I drank."

The officer said in the report that he had to assist Midgett in standing by holding on to her shirt. She attempted to run into the roadway, leading the officer to grab her shirt and restrain her.

Midgett refused to place both of her hands behind her back at the time of the arrest, yelling "no" repeatedly.

After a warning, the officer said he escorted Midgett to the ground and continued handcuffing her.

An ambulance escorted Midgett to St. Elizabeth's Hospital where she was treated and released with just a nose bleed.

Midgett was charged with OVI, obstructing official business and resisting arrest. She was transferred to Mahoning County Jail and is scheduled to be in court on Tuesday.
