Accused Drunk Driver: GPS Made Me Do It

The following arrest information was provided by the Westlake Police Department. It does not indicate a conviction.

If you've ever used a GPS navigator in your car, there may have been a time where it gave you imperfect directions. 

A 26-year-old Broadview Heights woman tried to blame driving the wrong way on I-90 on her GPS. It didn't work.

Jacqueline Kovach was stopped by at 2:34 a.m. on Aug. 26 near the Columbia Road overpass, driving west in the eastbound lanes. She told police she knew it was the wrong way, but drove anyway because the GPS told her to.

Kovach was found to have a blood-alcohol level of .111 and was arrested for drunk driving, open container (a can of beer), no seatbelt and willful and wanton disregard for safety.

Kovach reportedly then complained that police should be arresting drunks who are worse than her.

Solid reasoning if you ask me! :0

Problem here is, they took her advice I think. (I'm glad too)
