She was arrested April 28 in the 29000 block of Jackson Road at 9:03 a.m. after a deputy responded to a motor vehicle collision. Investigation by the deputy revealed a woman left a residence on Devonshire Drive shortly before the collision and drove into a yard in the 4000 block of Devonshire Drive but did not stop, the deputy said.

During the investigation, the deputy identified four additional yards that were driven through before the vehicle hit a tree and stopped, the deputy said.

The deputy said he detected an odor of an alcoholic beverage, administered a sobriety test, then arrested Brown.

The deputy said due to a previous DUI arrest, the driver was required to only operate a vehicle equipped with an ignition interlock device, which prevents a driver from operating a vehicle if the driver has alcohol in his or her system. The vehicle the deputy stopped was not equipped with the device.
