Woman suspected in string of DUI accidents being referred to drug court

Lisa Wallentine, 37, arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence and causing four accidents along Logan's Main Street. 

LOGAN — An 37-year-old Idaho woman, suspected of driving under the influence and causing four accidents along Main Street in December, appeared in court Monday, telling the judge she wished to be admitted to a court rehabilitation program.

Lisa Wallentine continued her initial appearance in 1st District Court. She is charged with three counts of driving under the influence, all third-degree felonies, also six other misdemeanor charges of reckless driving and leaving the scene of an accident.

Police arrested Wallentine December 30 after they said she caused three accidents while driving south on Main St. between 400 North and 300 South. When stopped, officers found an open container of alcohol in her vehicle. A sobriety test later showed she had a blood alcohol level above the state’s legal limit.

During Monday’s court appearance, Wallentine’s attorney said his client wished to be admitted to Drug Court, a courtroom program supervised by a judge. During the program, she’ll undergo treatment and counseling, make regular appearances before the judge, submit to frequent and random drug testing, and be monitored by probation officers.
