Woman charged with being a persistent DWI offender

Moberly police arrested Amy Phillips on Tuesday after officers observed a Jeep weaving within its line of traffic.

According to the probable cause statement, after officers followed the Jeep for some time, they observed it crossing over the centerline of traffic in the 1500 block of East Rollins Street.

When police made contact with Phillips, Phillips’s eyes were glassy and her speech was slurred.

Police said they observed a strong odor of intoxicants coming from Phillips.

Phillips told officers that she had not consumed any intoxicants.

Police said when Phillips attempted to get out of her vehicle, she stumbled.

Officers said they attempted to perform multiple breath tests on Phillips, but she was unable to provide a sample.

A search warrant was obtained for a sample of Phillips’s blood but officers were unable to obtain a sample due to her becoming physically combative, police said.

Communication officials told officers that Phillips had a revoked driving status and had two prior convictions for driving while intoxicated.

Phillips was charged with a DWI-persistent offender and driving with a revoked license.
