Woman, 53, Arrested for Drunk Driving at 10 a.m.

She nearly caused an accident on Smith Ridge Road before police finally pulled her over, officials said.


Police arrested a 53-year-old South Salem, NY woman on drunk driving and drug charges after stopping her for driving in the wrong lane at 10 a.m. one day last week.

Kim Jacoby was charged with operating under the influence, possession of marijuana (less than 4 ounces), possession of drug paraphernalia, reckless driving and failure to obey an officer’s signal.

According to Lt. Vince DeMaio of the New Canaan Police Department, Jacoby finally was pulled over near the intersection of Smith Ridge and Michigan Road at 10:04 a.m. on March 7 after nearly causing an accident by drifting into the oncoming (northbound) lane of Smith Ridge Road. She didn't stop her car right away when police tried to pull her over, DeMaio said.

While she was failing field sobriety tests, police saw marijuana in her car, DeMaio said. Police discovered later that although she had applied to receive a medical marijuana card from the state, she hadn’t received one yet so she wasn’t legally allowed to possess the drug, he said.

Jacoby was released on $1,000 bond and scheduled to appear March 22 in state Superior Court in Norwalk.
