Illinois drunk woman driver’s photos became viral after posted by police on Facebook


Maryann Christy, 54, of the 500 block of Spruce Court in Schaumburg, told police that she struck the tree somewhere in her hometown, but didn’t remember where. She  was driving with the tree when she was stopped by police near the Irving Park Road intersection. The tree was estimated to be about 15 feet tall and the woman driver smelled of alcohol and failed field sobriety tests. She was cited for driving under the influence and is due in DuPage County court April 15. “She was charged with DUI, no insurance and obstructed windshield,” Deputy Chief Roman Tarchala of the Roselle Police Department told to the media. A police report naming the woman will not be released until the case goes to court.
