NILES -- A woman was arrested in Niles on Friday for pending charges for allegedly operating a vehicle under the influence of liquor and a license violation.
Patricia Therese Besbes, 34, 1819 N Fifth St., Apt. No 8, Niles, was arrested after a police officer driving south on North Fifth Street observed a vehicle in the parking lot of the "Port of Call" bar, the police report said.
The vehicle was allegedly on top of a knocked over street light and was stuck because the front wheels were raised off the ground.

Allegedly smelling of intoxicants, Besbes was placed under arrest and transported to the Niles City Police Department where she was booked and lodged.
She was given a $500 bond for operating a vehicle under influence of liquor second offence, and $100 for driving without a drivers license.
