Harrington woman arrested for third DUI

HARRINGTON – The Harrington Police Department arrested Tammy L. Beaulieu, 51 of the 19,000 block of South DuPont Hwy in Harrington, for a third offense DUI and related charges Dec. 16.

While on patrol at 9:49 p.m., officers observed a vehicle crossing the double yellow lines on while traveling southbound on Delaware Ave.  As the vehicle turned onto Liberty Street, the vehicle ran over the curb.

Police then stopped the vehicle and contacted the driver, identified as Beaulieu and immediately detected a strong odor of alcohol coming from the vehicle.  Also, in plain view in the center console, police found an open alcohol container, according to Captain Kenny Brode.

Police then administered standard field sobriety tests.  After completing the tests, Beaulieu was taken into custody and transported back to the Harrington Police Department for processing.  She began complaining of side pain while inside the station and was transported to Milford Memorial Hospital for evaluation.

Police obtained a search warrant for a blood draw.  While at the hospital the blood draw was completed and she was also evaluated for the pain in her side.  The staff of the ER and police stepped out of the room to obtain paperwork after the blood draw.  When they returned, police determined that one vial of blood was missing. Officers determined that Beaulieu attempted to hide it from the officer.

It was later located hidden in a box in her room. She was released from the hospital and transported back to the Harrington Police Department for processing.  A computer check revealed that Beaulieu had previous DUI Convictions in 1994 and 2001.

She was charged with third offense driving under the influence, hindering prosecution, failure to have insurance identification in possession and driving over a curb.  She was arraigned via video phone at Justice of the Peace Court 7 and was released on $4,525 unsecured bond.
