The Edmonton Police Service said a 21-year-old woman was arrested following an impaired driving incident Saturday afternoon on Anthony Henday Drive.

Police said they received “several reports” around 1 p.m. that a Nissan Rogue was driving erratically in the area of Anthony Henday Drive and 66 Street NW, swerving in the lanes and shoulder median, and travelling through the ditch “several times.”

The vehicle also struck a guard rail and a sign, police said.

The woman driving the vehicle tried to evade police, but police used a “box-in” prevention technique to arrest her on Anthony Henday Drive, between 119 Street and 111 Street, nearly a half pass of the ring road from where the incident began.
