North Idaho Councilwoman Charged With Drunk Driving

Posted: Updated:
SANDPOINT, Idaho - PONDERAY, Idaho (AP) - A Sandpoint city councilwoman has been charged with misdemeanor drunken driving.
    
38-year-old Jamie Brunner was arrested Thursday night on U.S. Highway 95 after police say another motorist reported her driving erratically.
    
Brunner made her initial court appearance Friday in Bonner County Magistrate Court and posted $1,000 bail.
    
Court records say Brunner had a blood-alcohol content of 0.20, nearly three times the legal limit of 0.08.
    
Brunner in a written statement to the newspaper says she hopes for a "fair trial unbiased by preconceived notions an article or subsequent comments to the article might generate."
    
Judge Debra Heise ordered Brunner not consume alcohol and to undergo testing to verify she's in compliance with the court order.
    
A trial date hasn't been set.
