Havasu woman arrested on aggravated DUI charge

September 20, 2018

Mohave County prosecutors filed charges against a Lake Havasu City woman Tuesday on suspicion of aggravated DUI. Donna M. Richter, 57, was allegedly driving with an inoperable license plate light in the 2100 block of Mesquite Avenue when officers saw her vehicle swerving in its lane. According to the police report, Richter’s vehicle continued to swerve before reaching the intersection of Mesquite Avenue and Riviera Boulevard, where it made a sudden stop in the middle of the intersection.

Officers conducted a traffic stop, where Richter allegedly showed signs of impairment. Richter admitted to drinking prior to driving, the report said, and performed poorly in a series of field sobriety tests. A records check allegedly showed Richter was driving on a license suspended for a prior DUI charge.

Richter was transported to Lake Havasu City Jail for booking, where a breath test allegedly showed her blood-alcohol concentration to be 0.236.
