Astraitis allegedly admitted to consuming alcholic beverages but the report goes on to say that her slurred speech made it difficult for police to understand exactly how much she had.
 
Astratis submitted to a sobriety test which indicated she was over the limit.
 
She was arrested for OVI and was transported to the Washington County Jail for processing.  Later, Astraitis' BAC was .244
