A Delavan woman already facing a fourth-offense intoxicated driving charge was stopped Monday by sheriff's deputies, who suspected her of driving after smoking marijuana while her license was revoked, according to a criminal complaint.
Kimberly A. Faltinson, 31, of 820 Parish Court, Unit 4D, has been charged again with fourth-offense OWI, according to a complaint filed in Walworth County Court. She also was charged this week with fourth-offense operating with a restricted controlled substance in her blood, felony bail jumping and possession of marijuana.
Walworth County sheriff’s deputies said they stopped Faltinson while driving at about 8:30 p.m. Monday, according to the complaint. Faltinson said she had smoked marijuana about 10 minutes before driving.
She told police smoking helps with her anxiety, according to the complaint.
“If I wasn’t high right now, I would be way worse,” Faltinson told police.
Faltinson has three previous OWI convictions from 2014. She is also accused of driving while intoxicated in 2015.
