CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – A woman was arrested Thursday night in Chicopee after she allegedly passed out drunk in her car.

Chicopee Police Officer Mike Wilk told 22News officers were called to the parking lot of a Dale Street convenience store just before 7:00 p.m., where they found Kathleen Bolduc of Chicopee inside a Honda.

Wilk said an officer walked up to the car and smelled alcohol when Bolduc rolled down her window. The officer allegedly found an open container of alcohol in the cup holder and arrested Bolduc for operating under the influence of alcohol.

Wilk said a breathalyzer test administered at the police station determined Bolduc’s blood alcohol level was more than four times the legal limit of .08.

She was arraigned in Chicopee District Court Friday morning.
