ST. LOUIS, MO (KPLR)-  A woman was arrested Tuesday morning after driving drunk from Midtown to the Central West End. Our Mazda Road Runner spotted the woman driving erratically around 2a.m. near Saint Louis University in Midtown. Her car's engine was smoking, its wheels were squealing and it appeared the vehicle had been in an accident.

About 15 minutes later, police received a call for an accident near the intersection of Kingshighway at Forest Park Avenue. It was the same car. Authorities say the driver of the Silver Mercury Cougar told police she had been in an accident.

The footage from our Road Runner proved otherwise.

The woman was taken into custody after EMS crews told police she was intoxicated.
