Published:
PENDLETON, Ore. — Oregon State Police arrested an Edmonds woman on a drunken driving charge not long after getting a report that she may have been stuck in a mudslide.
The East Oregonian newspaper reported that a search and rescue crew looked for Melanie Machado, 48, Thursday after the woman texted a friend about a mudslide in the Umatilla National Forest.
The car was gone by the time volunteers arrived.
State police later arrested Machado after she allegedly sideswiped a car on I-84 near Pendleton and left the scene.
Machado faces charges of drunken driving and failure to perform the duties of a driver.
The newspaper reports she was released from jail after a posting bond and has a May 15 court date.
