Woman Seeks To Have Arrest Scrubbed From Records
A woman is suing the Municipality of Anchorage, claiming she was falsely arrested for drunken driving after she refused to give her phone number to a police officer.
The Anchorage Daily News reports Nancy Means is seeking to have the municipality scrub any evidence of her arrest.
Officer David Burns saw a minivan with hazard lights flashing Nov. 25, 2011. He found Means and three passengers in the disabled minivan.
Burns said he smelled a slight odor of alcohol. He sought and received her license and insurance information, but she refused when he asked for her phone number.
Burns then arrested her for operating a vehicle under the influence. A later breath test listed her blood-alcohol level at .000.
City attorney Dennis Wheeler says the arrest was proper.
