Posted By Thomas V. Wallin || 5-Jul-2011

A 16-year-old girl has been arrested for driving under the influence around 1am Sunday morning after just 5 months of having a provisional license.

According to Mercury News, officers were responding to a two-vehicle collision on Sir Francis Drake Blvd. at Bon Air Center in Greenbrae when they noticed a vehicle coming towards them at a fast speed. Officers tried to flag down the vehicle as it ran through a red light and finally came to a stop in the middle of the intersection.

The teenage driver was arrested for driving under the influence after they had her conduct field sobriety tests that she failed. On top of driving under the influence of drugs, the 16-year-old was driving on a provisional license, was violating a restriction to not drive after 11pm and had marijuana residue and a glass smoking pipe inside the vehicle.   After she was arrested, the teen was cited and released to a guardian and her vehicle was towed.
