DUI Suspect's Blood Alcohol Tests Nearly Four Times Legal Limit
Wendy Lynn Williams, 39, of 69 Shady Lea Road in North Kingstown, was arrested Aug. 17 at 9:30 p.m. on charges of drunken driving.
Police put out a bulletin for Williams’ vehicle after another motorist reportedly saw her car swerving on Post Road. Police pulled Williams over on Roger Williams Way in Quonset after allegedly seeing her speed and swerve in and out of lanes, nearly colliding head-on with two other cars.
Williams allegedly told police she was leaving the laundry mat in East Greenwich and was heading to to pick up her husband. According to police, Williams denied drinking that night and inadvertently gave an officer her debit card instead of her license.
Police reportedly had to stop Williams’ field sobriety test for her own safety: According to an officer at the scene, Williams was unstable on her feet and needed police assistance to prevent her from falling to the ground. During a preliminary breath test, Williams’ blood alcohol content allegedly measured at .306, almost four times the legal limit. At the North Kingstown Police Department, Williams took another breath test, this time allegedly registering BAC of .292 and .284.

While in her cell, Hall allegedly began to climb on top of the sink and toilet fixtures and kick the water release button. According to police, she also urinated on the floor of her cell and was splashing water everywhere, using her shirt, which she removed while in the cell.
