A woman faces DUI charges after crashing into a vehicle head-on. The woman in Kennesaw was arrested for multiple alcohol-related charges Thursday when she crashed into another vehicle. She was driving down the wrong side of the road when she slammed into a car in oncoming traffic.
Elizabeth Ann Potts, 46-years old, is facing 5 misdemeanor charges after the crash.
Potts was driving her black Ford SUV near the intersection of Pine Mountain Road and Signal Ridge Chase. She was driving on the wrong side of the road and crashed into another vehicle. There’s no information about the other vehicle or the other driver.
Potts was pulled over near Stilesboro Road at about 10:30 p.m.. The officer who pulled her over smelled alcohol on her breath, saw her bloodshot eyes and noticed she was slurring her words. She refused to take a breathalyzer test and was arrested for DUI.
While the officer was talking to Potts, he noticed an empty can of “Truly Berry Mix” on the grass outside her vehicle. He also noticed a box full of empty cans in the back of her car. She first denied drinking any alcohol, then admitted to having 2-3 drinks.
She was taken to the Cobb County Jail for booking when she decided to assault a female police officer who was patting her down.
Potts is now facing at least 5 misdemeanor charges, including DUI, driving while suspended, battery of a law enforcement officer, open container and driving on the wrong side of the road.
There was no information on her arrest warrant about any injuries or damage to the other car. Potts was in jail for three days before she was released on $8,000 bail. She will be expected in court later this month.
