Police: Stonington woman charged with DUI was 3 times legal limit



WESTERLY — Police charged a Stonington woman Thursday evening after a motor vehicle stop along White Rock Road revealed she was driving with a blood alcohol content more than three times the legal limit.

Gail E. Barry, of 360 Taugawonk Road, was taken into custody around 7:40 p.m. on one count of driving under the influence with a blood alcohol content greater than .15. She was later released and is expected to appear for arraignment in Fourth Division Superior Court later this month.

Westerly police said an officer stopped Barry along White Rock Road in Westerly after she was seen swerving and struggling to navigate the road. The officer detected a scent of alcohol and she was given a field sobriety test and taken into custody.

While at the Westerly Police Department, Barry consented to a breathalyzer test which produced readings of .225 and .242 in separate readings. The legal limit in Rhode Island is .08.

Barry was compliant with officers and was charged without incident, police said.
