A 24-year-old Perrysburg woman was arrested Monday by Orchard Park police after she left an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting in Hamburg allegedly highly intoxicated.

Josephine Pierce was stopped as she drove along Bussendorfer Road about 1:35 p.m. She was charged with driving while intoxicated and with an open alcohol container in a moving vehicle after she allegedly failed a field sobriety test.

Pierce was also charged with fourth-degree criminal mischief after she allegedly threw a Police Department telephone and broke it after she allegedly became uncooperative in Police Headquarters. She is being held pending her arraignment Tuesday in Orchard Park Town Court.
