Iowa City police arrested a woman after she allegedly drove drunk into a yard behind a house early Dec. 5.

Sara Shivapur, 24, 437 N. First Ave., was charged with OWI.

Police responded to a call around 3 a.m. and found the car still running with Shivapour passed out behind the wheel, police said.

Shivapour was found with vomit on her clothing, strong odor of alcohol, and poor balance, and she was very disoriented, police said.

Shivapour took two tests to determine her blood-alcohol content. The preliminary breath test showed a blood-alcohol content of .155, and the DataMaster test showed a .146 blood-alcohol content. The legal limit to operate a vehicle is .08.

First-offense OWI is a serious misdemeanor, punishable by up to one year in jail and a fine of $1,250.
