A local woman was arrested for DUI after officers saw her driving over the double yellow and fog lines on Route 7.

Denita Sherman, 42, of Danbury, was arrested around 10 p.m. Oct. 30 after Wilton police observed her driving her 2012 Toyota Camry northbound on Route 7 in an erratic manner, said Lt. Robert Kluk.

Officers said that Sherman was traveling over the white fog line and the double yellow line and when officers attempted to make a traffic stop, wh continued driving for about a mile before finally pulling over, Kluk said.

When officers approached the vehicle they could smell marijuana and Sherman allegedly showed signs of impairment, police said.

Sherman, who was driving on a suspended license, admitted that she had been smoking marijuana laced with PCP; a search of the vehicle revealed a small amount of marijuana.

She was arrested after failing a series of field sobriety test and charged with operating a vehicle under the influence, driving with a suspended license, failure to return license, failure to maintain proper lane and possession of marijuana.

Sherman was given a bond of $260 and assigned a court date.
