Police reported they caught up to them behind a residence at the top of Columbia Court and ordered them to the ground.
One of the suspects complied and was taken into custody. The other allegedly ignored the order and kept running. He was later found hiding in the brush off the south side of Columbia Court.
The third suspect was found by another officer on Columbia Court and also brought into custody.
Parents of the suspects were all notified.
Driving Under the Influence
Twenty-four year old Heather Raymond of 98 Gibbs Ave., Newport, was arrested around 3:41 a.m. Sunday, March 4., on a first offense misdemeanor driving under the influence charge. Raymond was also cited for presence of alcoholic beverage while operating a motor vehicle and operating to the left of center.
Raymond was pulled over after police reported that she swerved across the yellow dividing lines lines on East Main Road, which almost created a head-on collision with on-coming traffic. Police activated the cruiser emergency lights and pulled Raymond over just north of Middletown Town Hall.
The officer reported that Raymond’s eyes were “barely open” and he smelled a strong odor of alcohol. They stated there was a half empty bottle of wine in the back seat.
When asked what time it was, Raymond allegedly replied “about 1 'o' clock.” The officer reported it was approximately 3:30 a.m.
After conducting field sobriety tests, officers brought Raymond into custody and administered a chemical test. She reportedly blew a .19 and a .18 at 4:33 a.m. and 4:35 a.m.
