HOPKINS CO., KY (WFIE) -

A Hopkins County woman is arrested after driving her vehicle into a telephone pole.

It happened Thursday afternoon in Madisonville on North Seminary Street.

Police say Lisa Rickard drove off the roadway and into a telephone pole.

They say Rickard had extremely slurred speech, bloodshot eyes and a strong odor of alcohol on her breath. Officers say they also found a half empty vodka bottle on the floorboard.  

She was taken to the emergency room at Baptist Health for injuries to her head.

That's when officers say she became disorderly and resisted arrest.

She's now being held at the Hopkins County Detention Center on multiple charges.
