GREENE COUNTY, Ind. (WTHR) - State police arrested a woman Saturday after an officer said he clocked her driving more than 100 miles per hour.

The trooper was working a Memorial Day Weekend enforcement program on Interstate 69 in Greene County when he saw a vehicle that appeared to be speeding. Police say the officer's radar reported that the Chrysler 200 was going 101 in a 70 mph zone.

According to the report, Brittany L. Busko, 21, South Bend, was driving the car. After the trooper detected what he called "the odor of an alcoholic beverage," he conducted tests at the traffic stop and later at the sheriff's department. Busko voluntarily submitted to a breath test, which ISP said showed a BAC of .18%, or twice the state's legal limit.

Busko was held at the Greene County jail on allegations of Operating While Intoxicated W/BAC .15 or more and Operating While Intoxicated endangering a person, Operating While Intoxicated, C Misdemeanor and Reckless Driving, C Misdemeanor.
