Wednesday — Erika J. Porter, 37, of Gibsonia was charged with driving under the influence in connection with a November traffic stop on Route 8 at Dwellington Drive. Police stopped her shortly after midnight Nov. 12, police said, after she drove up very close to the rear of a cruiser at a high rate of speed. She later passed the police car and did not use her turn signals to change lanes, according to court documents, and straddled the white fog line.

The officer, after pulling over her car, noticed a beer can in the center console. Porter admitted having “two beers” in Butler that night, documents said.

Police said they later found 12 empty beer cans on the passenger side floor in addition to the open can in the console.

Porter failed field sobriety tests and a portable breath test device confirmed she had alcohol in her system, documents said. She refused to submit to a blood test after she was taken to UPMC Passavant Cranberry.

In addition to DUI, she is charged driving with an open container of alcohol, following too closely to another vehicle and failing to use turn signals.
