A Kelso woman is in jail after allegedly driving while intoxicated through the drive-thru lane Monday afternoon at the Jack in the Box restaurant in Kelso, causing at least $18,000 in damage.
Sarah Ann Godfrey, 21, was arrested in connection with driving under the influence, fourth-degree assault, criminal impersonation, driving with a suspended license and first-degree malicious mischief.
According to a police report, Godfrey backed her Geo Tracker into the drive-thru lane, crossing over a median and into a water meter and shrubs. The vehicle also allegedly side-swiped the menu board and nearly ripped the menu off its metal pole, where the front of the car rested when Kelso police arrived.
Godfrey reportedly tried to flee the scene but was detained by employees — whom she fought with and attempted to bite, according to a dispatch report.
Officers attempted a field sobriety test after arriving on the scene, where Godfrey was allegedly uncooperative and apparently “extremely impaired,” according to the police report.
Godfrey is being held on $52,000 bail at the Cowlitz County Jail.
Godfrey also has warrants for driving with a suspended license and driving while intoxicated.
