Visitor arrested for driving drunk after crash

A Fishers woman was arrested on drunken driving charges after she tried to give her phone as her license, police said.

Brown County Sheriff’s Deputy Colton Magner encountered Sharon R. Kirts, 73, at about 7:40 p.m. June 9 after a crash. It occurred in the 600 block of State Road 135 North, his report said.

Magner wrote that Kirts smelled of alcohol, her speech was slurred, she staggered from the vehicle and she tried to give the officer her cellphone instead of her license, then corrected, the report said.

A breath test given at the scene showed a result of 0.135, which is over the legal limit, the report said.

She was charged June 12 with three alcohol-related misdemeanors.
