ROCKLAND COUNTY, N.Y. - A woman from Mahwah allegedly driving drunk late night was busted by police after backing into another car and attempting to speed away in Pearl River.

An officer from the Orangetown Police Department spotted a 2013 Ford Escape back into another vehicle on East Central Avenue at approximately 3:45 a.m. on Saturday, before driving away without stopping or attempting to report the incident.

Police said that the officer followed the driver, later identified as 24-year-old Leticia Martinez-Bueno, and conducted a traffic stop for leaving the scene of an accident. During the subsequent stop, the officer said that Martinez-Bueno’s eyes were bloodshot and watery and he detected the smell of alcohol on her breath. She proceeded to fail multiple Standardized Field Sobriety Tests before being taken into custody.

Martinez-Bueno failed a breathalyzer test at Orangetown Police Headquarters and was subsequently charged with a misdemeanor count of driving while intoxicated and leaving the scene of a motor vehicle accident, a violation. She was processed and released. Martinez-Bueno is due back in Orangetown Justice Court on Dec. 13 to answer the charges.
