A Bellows Falls woman was arrested Monday on multiple charges after what began as a routine traffic stop within the village.
According to a press release, police pulled over 31-year-old Shannon Rajda for failing to maintain her lane early Monday evening. Once off the roadway, officers discovered Rajda had been driving with a suspended license as the result of a previous conviction for driving under the influence.
Police administered a breathalyzer on the scene to which it was determined the woman had not been drinking, though officers still suspected she was under the influence of drugs.
Rajda then refused a blood test, and was arrested on charges of suspicion of DUI, driving with a suspended license and refusal to cooperate with officers.
She was later released to a sober party pending her arraignment in Windham County Court Dec. 22.
