Fourth DWI Comes With Multiple Leaving Accident Scene and Driving While Revoked Charges

St. Peters Police said Christine Dalton racked up nine charges within three months, including a DWI, two counts of leaving an accident scene and three counts of driving with a revoked license.

A St. Charles County woman faces nine charges related to alcohol-impaired driving, including DWI, leaving an accident scene, driving while revoked and charges.

Christine Marie Dalton, 27, of the first block of Ashbrook Drive in St. Charles County near St. Peters, was charged Thursday with DWI as an aggravated offender, two counts of leaving an accident scene, three counts each of failure to comply with an interlock device order and driving with her license revoked.

Dalton has three previous DWI convictions.

St. Peters Police said Dalton drove off the eastbound Interstate 70 exit ramp at Mid Rivers Mall Drive and went over a reflector sign Jan. 17. Her car was stuck on a sewer grate and she left the area on foot. Police said a witness identified Dalton from a photo lineup.

A week later, St. Peters Police pulled Dalton over on St. Peters Parkway near Jungermann Road after officers said she drove erratically. Officers said they noticed signs of intoxication, Dalton did poorly on a sobriety test and that she refused a Breathalyzer test.

Dalton had limited driving privileges, but officers said she acknowledged shopping before being stopped, and so she was driving while her license was revoked. Her car also did not have an interlock device.

On April 3, police said Dalton again left the scene of an accident where she was at fault on St. Peters Parkway near Jungermann Road.

In all three incidents, officers said Dalton had no interlock device on the car as ordered by a St. Charles County Circuit judge, and she was driving with her license revoked. Although she had limited driving privileges, police said they did not extend to the circumstances in which Dalton was driving.

Dalton is being held in St. Charles County jail. Bail was set at $30,000 on the condition that she does not drive, does not drink and she may not enter a business in which alcohol is the primary item for sale.

I believe that she should sue the makers of the alcohol beverage for not listing just how many drinks that she should have before getting drunk. This is exactly what is happening concerning Football. Parents of kids playing in the Junior league are suing the Helmet Manufacturer for not having a Caution Label on the Helmet indicating that the Helmet will not prevent concussions. There are people who will not understand this but any of you who had a Helmet to Helmet and tried to answer the telephone on the 35 yard line knows exactly what I mean.

This young woman is in serious need of help. I sincerely hope she chooses to get herself off alcohol and drugs before she kills someone or herself.
