Woman Drives 100 mph, Registers .200 Blood Alcohol Level

Police also found magic mushrooms in the car.

Portsmouth Police charged a 24-year-old Massachusetts woman with driving under the influence Saturday after an officer saw her drive about 100 mph near the Route 24 onramp on West Main Road.

According to a police report, Brianne Desvergnes, of Littleton, Mass., was seen driving fast at around 1:51 a.m. in her Honda Civic.

The officer caught up to Desvergnes, who reportedly slowed down to about 50 mph near the onramp and then started to rapidly accelerate.

The officer sped up and reached a speed of 100 mph and noted that Desvergnes seemed to be pulling away when he was going 90 mph.

Eventually, Desvergnes was pulled over and reportedly told police it had been a long day and she just wanted to get home.

The officer reported that he smelled alcohol and Desvergnes failed a field sobriety test.

A search of the car turned up a bag of what appeared to be psychedelic mushrooms, police said.

As a result, she was charged with driving under the influence and felony possession of a controlled substance.

Desverges reportedly registered a .201 blood alcohol level after a preliminary breath test, but she later refused a chemical test at the police station.

Its a shame to see young ladies like this behaving in such a negative demeanor. What happened to being a respectful young lady? But more importantly, what happened to the magic mushrooms? I am very interested in the police station's disposal procedures concerning such a groovy substance.

Expect more and more cases of reckless and dangerous driving cases with the legalization of marijuana.
