At approx. 11:00 AM Saturday, police were called regarding a possible impaired driver in the area of the 300 block of 6th St.  Members attended to the area, however the vehicle was no longer in the area, nor had it returned to the address of its owner.  A short time later an officer observed the vehicle in the 600 block of 6th St and a stop was initiated.  The driver, a 21-year-old female of Brandon was observed by the officer to be under the influence of alcohol and was therefore arrested for impaired driving.  She provided two samples of her breath, which resulted in readings approx. twice the legal limit.  She was released to a sober friend, and will appear in court on September 7, charged with impaired driving and drive over .08.
