May 27, 2019

A 21-year-old South Bend woman is in custody after police say she drove over 100 mph and tested twice the legal blood alcohol content limit.

About 8 a.m. Saturday, Indiana State Police trooper Richard Klun saw a black Chrysler 200 traveling at a high rate of speed south on Interstate 69. Klun used his radar gun and clocked the Chrysler at 101 mph in a 70 mph zone. Klun was able to catch up to the driver and pulled the vehicle over, according to an ISP news release.

Klun noticed a strong smell of alcohol on the driver, Brittany Busko, and she submitted to several field sobriety tests, which she failed.

She was taken to the Greene County Sheriff’s Department, where she gave a breath test. She had a blood alcohol level of 0.18%, twice that of the state legal limit of 0.08%.

Busko has been charged with operating while intoxicated with a BAC of 0.15% or more, operating while intoxicated endangering a person, operating while intoxicated and reckless driving.
