Two arrested and charged with DUI

T wo Whitehall residents were arrested and charged with driving under the influence last weekend in Fair Haven, Vt.

Brenda Banks, 50, was arrested around 11 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 10 after police observed her drive off Route 4A several times, police said.

Upon interviewing the subject, officers suspected Banks was under the influence of alcohol and subsequently failed field sobriety tests and was taken into custody.

Banks was found to have a blood alcohol contest on .189, more than twice the legal limit of .08.

She was released and ordered to appear in court at a later date. Banks has a prior DUI conviction in New York.

The incident occurred approximately 24 hours after another Whitehall resident was arrested for driving under the influence.

At 11:30 p.m. on Dec. 9, police arrested and charged Daryn P. Lowell, 21, with driving under the influence.

Lowell was stopped by police on Washington Street for failure to keep right and an obstructed windshield. Police interviewed Lowell and detected he may be under the influence of alcohol. He failed field sobriety tests and was found to have a BAC of .15.

Police had spoke with Lowell earlier that evening and warned him against driving.

Lowell was also found to be in violation of a 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. curfew from an arson arrest earlier this summer and for violating an abuse protection order. Lowell was arrested and released to appear in Rutland district court at a later date.
