Incline Village woman ordered to jail in DUI probation violation

An Incline Village woman was ordered to serve 140 days in Douglas County Jail after she tested positive for alcohol and cocaine in violation of her probation for a second driving under the influence conviction.

Victoria Brown, 52, was arrested April 22 at her Incline Village condominium by Chief Probation Officer Doug Swalm.

He said in his report he found Brown under a blanket on the couch in a third-floor livingroom.

Swalm said Brown's vehicle was in the driveway, but she refused to answer the doorbell or telephone after he called from her front yard when he showed up to test her for drugs or alcohol.

Swalm said he looked in her vehicle and found an automatic garage door opener that he used to gain entry to the residence.

She admitted to Swalm she consumed a bottle of vodka that day. Brown also tested positive for cocaine.

Her blood-alcohol content was .162, more than twice the legal limit of .08 for driving in Nevada.

Brown originally was arrested April 29, 2007, after her vehicle rolled over on Highway 88. Her blood-alcohol content was .364, more than four times the legal limit.

She has a prior DUI conviction from 2002 in Washoe County.

She told East Fork Justice Jim EnEarl on Wednesday she had completed an in-patient treatment program at Sierra Recovery Center.

"The program isn't working well if you're .16 plus cocaine over the top of that," he said.

EnEarl revoked her probation and ordered her to serve 140 days.

Bail was set at $5,000 cash for a Carson City woman who tested positive for alcohol when she showed up in East Fork Justice Court on an allegation she was driving at more than twice the legal limit for alcohol with a 6-year-old in her vehicle.

Justice Jim EnEarl ordered Jennifer Ann Graybill, 29, to appear in court on Wednesday to answer a child endangerment charge.

She told the judge she was 5-1⁄2 months pregnant.

She was arrested April 4 after witnesses reported a motorist driving erratically and without headlights at 10 p.m. Deputies stopped Graybill and found an open bottle of vodka in her vehicle.

Her blood-alcohol content was .20, more than twice the legal limit of .08 for driving in Nevada.
