Driving Instructor Busted for OVI; Half-Empty Bottle of Vodka Found
EASTLAKE, Ohio — A driving instructor is charged with operating a
vehicle under the influence of alcohol or drugs (OVI) after she failed a
field sobriety test following a traffic stop, Fox 8 News reports.
Vicki Wojtila, 45, of Euclid, was arrested on Friday at approximately
6:30 p.m. Wojtila, a driving instructor for the Town and City Driving
School in Willowick, had just dropped off a juvenile student minutes
The reporting officer observed the student driver vehicle — a 2001
Buick Century — traveling westbound on Roberts Road. After noticing some
seriously erratic driving, the officer activated his cruiser lights.
The car, however, didn’t pull over right away.
Once it finally did stop, the officer identified Wojtila as the
driver, noting that she appeared to be under the influence of alcohol
and/or drugs. She failed field sobriety testing and refused to submit to
breath testing at the Eastlake Police Department station. A half-empty
bottle of vodka was found in her purse.
Wojtila was arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence.
She is scheduled to appear Tuesday in Willoughby Municipal Court on
charges of OVI and other traffic violations.
