A Campbellsville woman has been arrested and charged after she allegedly drove drunk and then brought marijuana into the Taylor County Detention Center.

Suzanne L. Corbo, 25, of 317 Bell Court, was arrested Friday, Feb. 22, at 11:32 p.m.

According to Corbo's arrest citation, Campbellsville Police received a complaint of someone driving a vehicle without its headlights illuminated.

Officer Charlie Houk wrote in court records that he saw the vehicle and stopped the driver. When making contact with the driver, he wrote, he noticed she appeared agitated, smelled of alcohol and was dirty.

Corbo allegedly had bloodshot eyes, was unsteady on her feet and failed several field sobriety tests.

Records state that Corbo told Houk she had consumed two to three beers about 45 minutes before she was stopped. Corbo's blood alcohol level was .162, higher than the legal limit of .08.

She was charged with failure to illuminate head lamps, DUI with aggravating circumstances, having no operator's license and failure of non-owner operator to maintain required insurance.

After being arrested, Corbo was taken to the detention center. While being booked, she was strip-searched. During the search, records state, a deputy found a small bag of marijuana fell from Corbo's bra.

Corbo was then charged with first-degree promoting contraband.

She is scheduled to be arraigned in Taylor District Court on Monday, March 11.
