A Jamesport woman was arrested Sunday in Laurel on a drunken driving charge, Southold Town police said.

Jaime Asklund, 34, was pulled over after she was observed crossing the solid double yellow line while driving on Route 25 near Bray Avenue at around 11:30 p.m., police said.

Ms. Asklund’s breath “smelled of an alcoholic beverage and she failed standardized field sobriety tests,” officials said.

Ms. Asklund was charged with driving while intoxicated, a misdemeanor, and held for an arraignment, police said.
