Janesville police said they picked up a Milton woman on OWI charges early Friday morning while she was waiting to get food at the drive-thru at Taco Bell.

The incident happened at the restaurant in the 1600 block of Milton Avenue in Janesville just before 1 a.m. Friday.

According to police, Sara Hemming, 37, went through the drive-thru twice on separate occasions to get food. Police said an employee thought Hemming was intoxicated and called police.

Police said officers made contact with Hemming, and she refused field sobriety tests. However, police said Hemming did do a breath test after she was arrested, which revealed she had a BAC of .27.

Hemming faces her fourth charge of operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated.
