A Northern Ohio woman has been charged with her second offense for driving under the influence in 12 days. Heather M. Leyda reportedly lost control of her 1998 Pontiac Grand Prix, drove off the left side of the road and struck a highway barrier. She was not injured though a test for blood alcohol content registered .194%. The legal limit for intoxication in Ohio is .08%.
Leyda, 25, was booked at the Ottawa County Detention Center and held Wednesday morning on $4,000 bail. She is scheduled to appear in court on August 18.
Leyda has another pending case from July 30 charges of DUI in Ohio and resisting arrest in Erie Township. A sheriff’s deputy observed her erratic driving around 2:00 am and followed her to a rest area. According to the arrest report, Leyda appeared highly intoxicated with glassy eyes and an odor of alcohol. She refused to submit to field sobriety tests and at one point told the officers that she was leaving. When told she was under arrest, she resisted and began yelling at the officers. Her bond in that case was set at $9,025.
