A Westchester County woman is facing charges after police said she drove while intoxicated and resisted arrest.

New York State Police stopped a vehicle on I-287 in the town of Harrison for a number of traffic violations at about 2:15 a.m. on Sunday, Oct. 17, police said.

The driver, 46-year-old Michele Lavarde, of Port Chester, was found to be intoxicated, State Police said.

State Police said Lavarde was charged with the following misdemeanors:

  • Driving while intoxicated
  • Resisting arrest 
  • Second-degree obstructing governmental administration

She is scheduled to appear in court on Tuesday, Nov. 9.
