GREENE COUNTY, Ind.—A South Bend woman was arrested on Saturday and faces preliminary charges of reckless driving and driving while intoxicated, according to Indiana State Police.

On May 25 around 8 a.m., an Indiana State Police Trooper observed a black Chrysler 200 traveling southbound on I-69 near the 93.5 mile marker at what appeared to be a high rate of speed.

Using his radar, the Trooper found that the car was traveling at 101 mph in a 70 mph zone.

A traffic stop was conducted and while speaking with the driver, identified as Brittany L. Busko, 21, of South Bend, the Trooper detected a strong odor of alcohol coming from Busko.

According to police, Busko failed several field sobriety tests and was transported to the Greene County Sheriff’s Department where a breath test showed a BAC of .18%, which is over twice the legal limit.

Busko is charged with operating while intoxicated with a BAC of .15 or more, operating while intoxicated endangering a person, operating while intoxicated, and reckless driving.

The Trooper was working a Combined Accident Reduction Effort (Project CARE) over the Memorial Day weekend at the time of the incident.

Will her chase be seen on World's craziest videos?
If so that would be the ultimate punishment for her reckless driving.

Well thats early in the morning to be that intoxicated.
At least no one was hurt.
Must have been a long night.
I guess we all learn lessons the hard way sometimes.
You gotta stay sober if you plan to drive.
100mph doesn't bother me. All free ways need a real fast lane.
Most cars are equipped for that speed now a days.
Nice job by the local law enforcement.
Could have been alot worse.

Please be respectful of all life.
Happy Memorial Day!
Go Irish!
