EVERETT -- Bail was set at $20,000 Thursday for a woman arrested for investigation of attempting to elude police, drunken driving, reckless driving and resisting arrest.
It was the second time in less than two months she had been arrested for investigation of drunken driving, officials said Thursday.
A Washington State Patrol trooper tried to stop the woman's car that was headed northbound on I-5 near Everett, but it sped off shortly after 2 p.m. Wednesday.
The Everett woman, 23, made numerous lane changes and reached speeds of 95 mph in a posted 60 mph zone, according to court papers.
She also drove through a stop sign after leaving the highway. When she stopped, she refused to obey orders to get out of her car.
Troopers eventually broke out a window to arrest her.
She reportedly had watery, blood-shot eyes and a red face and smelled of alcohol. Her blood alcohol level was more than three times the state's legal limit, according to results from a portable breath test.
Her license already had been suspended, court papers said.
