EP woman arrested after driving drunk at 120 mph in possession of MJ, Police say

Eagle Pass, TX - She was reportedly going 120 miles per hour when a patrolman stopped a woman who in a state of intoxication was traveling in her 2020 Ford Mustang.

The woman was seen in an area close to El Indio highway and Tierra Soberana, a road that gives access to the nearby Rosita Valley area and the Kickapoo Tribe reserve.

The female was identified as 20-year-old Samanta Alicia Martínez and despite she disobeyed the instructions of the Sheriff's patrol unit who attempted to stop her and was able to get to her home, she failed to completely evade her arrest.

Martinez was taken into custody, at a residence located in Winchester Street. According to reports, the woman showed alcohol intoxication, and possessed a package with marijuana in her vehicle in an amount established as personal consumption.

However, for driving irresponsibly she will be charged with DWI, therefore will be prosecuted at the hands of a judge, said Sheriff Tom Schmerber who highlighted the intervention of the patrol car that prevented a possible serious accident.
