A lawyer for the Hamilton County Public Defender’s Office is facing charges of impaired driving and drug possession.
According to court records, Colerain Police stopped Susan Zillick after spotting her maroon 2015 Jeep Cherokee driving the wrong way on eastbound Interstate 275 at 1:09 a.m. Monday.
Police say her vehicle was operating without headlights and nearly struck several cars.
Once they pulled her over, police said, she did not know what was going on and had urinated on herself.
Police wrote in a criminal complaint they found five Xanax bars in a tin in her purse.
She was charged with operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol, possession of drugs and driving without headlights.
Zillick is out on a $1,000 bond and returns to court Oct. 16.
