Police arrested a Coralville woman after bar patrons allegedly tried to prevent her from driving while intoxicated.

Marcia Kellenberger, 43, was charged Tuesday with OWI.

According to police reports, officers responded to a call about an intoxicated woman who was being blocked into a parking lot by people with whom she was at a bar.

Upon arrival, police said they found Kellenberger in the driver’s seat with the car in drive. Officials said she smelled of alcohol and asked her to put the car in park.

After submitting a preliminary breath test of .301, police said the woman was unable to get past the instructional stage of a field-sobriety test.

Kellenberger allegedly told police she was just driving home and thought she was in her home driveway instead of the Autozone parking lot.

Police also said the woman also tried to expose her breasts to officers several times.
