DIXIE INN — A 61-year-old Springhill woman was arrested on a third-offense DWI charge Saturday, authorities said.

Webster Parish Sheriff’s deputy Trey Walker was patrolling along U.S. Highway 80 when he observed a silver Saturn driven by Katherine Kelley cross the fog line and swerve over the centerline, according to the arrest affidavit.

During a traffic stop, Kelley exited the vehicle stumbling and leaning on the vehicle for balance, the report said. The deputy also saw an open container inside the vehicle, according to the report.

Kelly reportedly failed a standard field sobriety test and was arrested on charges of DWI third offense, driving under suspension, improper lane usage and open container.

Her blood alcohol content was 0.124 percent, according to the report. The legal limit is 0.08 percent.

After being arrested, she was transferred to Bayou Dorcheat Correctional Center.
