HOOKSETT — Police arrested two people for driving while intoxicated over the weekend.

A report of an erratic driver Friday just before 10 p.m. brought police to a parking lot at 1250 Hooksett Road.

Police were told the driver of the vehicle was “yelling obscenities out the window and was possibly intoxicated,” police said in a news release.

The driver was identified as Donna Conaway, 56.

“While speaking with Conaway, an odor of an alcoholic beverage was detected and Conaway admitted to drinking alcohol,” the news release states.

Conaway was asked to take field sobriety tests, which she agreed to.

She was arrested for DWI and taken to the Hooksett Police Department, where she was asked to take a breath test. She refused, police said.

Conaway was booked, bailed and released on $2,500 personal recognizance. She is due in Hooksett District Court on March 29.

On Saturday night, a 27-year-old man was stopped for crossing the yellow line on West River Road by Pine Street, according to police.

Police said Taylor Blackwell showed signs of impairment and agreed to a field sobriety test just before 8:30 p.m.

Blackwell was arrested and taken to the police station, where he agreed to a breath test; police said he had a blood-alcohol level of .16.

Blackwell was charged with aggravated DWI and was booked, processed and released on $4,000 personal recognizance.

His court date is April 5.
