PARK RAPIDS, Minn. (WCCO) -- Police in Hubbard County say that a 43-year-old woman has been arrested and charged with driving under the influence after she crashed into her apartment building earlier this month.

Katie Roth, of Akeley, faces third-degree DUI charges. Police said the crash happened May 16.

Investigators say that when they responded to the crash, they found her sitting in a wheelchair next to her crashed vehicle. She allegedly told police she had been drinking vodka at the Akeley Municipal Liquor Store prior to the rash.
