BENTON, Ark. — Benton police say a woman has been arrested for her 11th driving while intoxicated charge.

Police say in a news release that 49-year-old Sheila Blair of Benton was arrested Wednesday afternoon for DWI, refusing to submit to an intoxication test and failure to yield to an emergency vehicle.

Online jail records show she is being held without bond.

Police say Blair was arrested by officers investigating reports of a reckless driver and that she led police on a chase before being stopped.

Blair served 11 months of a 10-year sentence for her tenth DWI and was released on parole in 2008.

Police Lt. Kevin Russell told the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette that Blair had gotten her driver’s license reinstated.
