(COLUMBUS) - Police arrested a Columbus woman who was found unresponsive in her vehicle in the drive-thru of a White Castle over the weekend.

Columbus officers responded to the White Castle located at 1686 North National Road around 4:50 a.m. Saturday after a customer called to report a woman asleep in the driver's seat of her car in the drive-thru.


Police identified the woman as 30-year-old Joanna Purtlebaugh. Officers woke her up and said she failed several field sobriety tests. She blew a 0.153 on a portable breath test, which police say is nearly twice the legal limit.

Purtlebaugh was taken to Columbus Regional Hospital for a blood test and then booked into the Bartholomew County Jail on a preliminary charge of operating a vehicle while intoxicated.
