Woman Arrested On 10th Drunken Driving Offense

SIREN, Wis. (AP) — A Minnesota woman is arrested for drunken driving again — potentially her tenth offense for driving under the influence.

Cynthia Bearhart-Benjamin, 53, of Sandstone was pulled over in Burnett County Sunday afternoon. A state trooper stopped Bearhart-Benjamin on Highway 77 near Danbury. She was arrested on suspicion of operating a vehicle while intoxicated.

The Duluth News Tribune says a passenger in the vehicle was cited for having open intoxicants.
