Another drunk driver is off the roads after driving off the road in North Stafford.

On November 5th, at approximately 5:40 p.m. a call of a reckless driver came in. The caller advised a silver Chevy Cavalier was traveling westbound on Garrisonville Road in a reckless manner. As Deputy C.T. Richardson responded to the area, another call came in advising the same vehicle was seen driving off the road before getting stuck near Stafford Glen Court.

Deputy Richardson made contact with the driver, Joanne Boutchyard, 45, of Stafford. Boutchyard had slurred speech and the extremely strong odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from her person. Deputies had a hard time holding a conversation with Boutchyard due to her level of intoxication. It was also discovered her license was suspended.

Deputy Richardson conducted a search of the vehicle where he located several empty mini-bottles of vodka. Boutchyard was charged with driving under the influence and driving while suspended. She was held at Rappahannock Regional Jail until sober.

Great work to Deputy Richardson for getting another drunk driver off the road, and thank you to the concerned citizens who made the initial calls. Drive sober or end up in Rappahannock Regional Jail.
