MANCHESTER -- A Manchester woman is facing drug and drunk driving charges following a traffic stop last week in Hooksett.

According to Hooksett police, at 1:10 a.m. on Aug. 15 an officer was traveling north on Hooksett Road in the area of McDonald’s when he saw a vehicle stopped at the intersection with Whitehall Road.

According to police, the vehicle had come to a stop beyond the stop line and was waiting in the intersection for the light to turn green.

Police identified the driver as Jordyn Mastacouris, 28, of Manchester.

According to police, while speaking with Mastacouris, officers reported detecting the odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from her person.

Police said Mastacouris admitted to consuming alcohol before driving, and was allegedly displaying indicators of impairment.

According to police, Mastacouris participated in field sobriety testing and was taken into custody for driving under the influence. Mastacouris refused to submit to a breath test, and was additionally charged with three felony counts of possession of a controlled drug after police say they found medication in her vehicle she did not have a prescription for.

Mastacouris was released on personal recognizance bail with a Merrimack County Superior Court arraignment date of Aug. 29 at 1 p.m.
