One Prince Albert woman is feeling more than just the effects of alcohol after an afternoon of drinking left police with an easy to solve case.
Around 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, Saskatoon police got a call from a bar on Broadway saying a woman left without paying her large tab. Unfortunately for the woman, she left her purse and identification behind, thwarting any potential dine-and-dash efforts.
An hour later, police got another call of a woman driving a black Mercedes leaving a bar on Diefenbaker Drive without paying her tab. This time the woman left her shoes behind.
At 5:40 p.m. around ten minutes later, police were called about a collision on at 11th Street West and Circle Drive. The witness on the phone said a Mercedes had run into a truck and was leaving the scene east on 11th St.
A patrol car found a black Mercedes smashed against a fence down the street at 11th St. and Avenue W only minutes later.
There, a shoe-less woman stood next to the wrecked car, making this an open and shut case for police.
A 35-year-old woman is facing charges of impaired driving, driving while prohibited and a variety of dine-and-dash related charges. She is scheduled to appear in Saskatoon Provincial Court in September.
