Local News

A woman has been arrested for driving under the influnce while in a police station parking lot, where she was waiting to pick up a friend — who had also been arrested for DUI.

Tanika McGrath, 20, of St. Albans was arrested just before 1 am Tuesday.

Police say a state trooper leaving the St Albans Police Department made contact with McGrath in the parking lot as she waited for someone to be released after an arrest for a DUI-drugs offense. 

Police say the trooper suspected McGrath was herself impaired and after an investigation she was arrested on suspicion of operating the vehicle while under the influence of drugs.

McGrath was transported to the St. Albans State Police Barracks and released with a citation to appear in court in June.
