The principal of Strong Elementary School was arrested in Farmington on Friday night after police say she drove under the influence of alcohol.

The Sun Journal reports that a Farmington police officer stopped Brenda Sue Dwiggins, 61, on Perham Street, near the Quebec Street intersection, for a defective tail light.

During the traffic stop, the officer became suspicious that Dwiggins was under the influence of alcohol and conducted a field sobriety test, after which Dwiggins was arrested, according to the Sun Journal.

Dwiggins, a Farmington resident, was taken to the Franklin County Detention Center, where she was charged with misdemeanor operating under the influence, the Sun Journal reports. She was later released on $150 cash bail.

She is scheduled to appear in court on June 18.
