ALTON—A 28-year-old Ireton woman was arrested about 7:30 a.m. Wednesday, Oct. 16, on a charge of second-offense operating while under the influence in Alton.

The arrest of Kate Lorrena Holtrop stemmed the stop of a 2006 Saturn Vue following a complaint about an erratic driver on Highway 10 east of Alton, according to the Iowa State Patrol.

Holtrop told the trooper she had been drinking in Ireton the previous night and was not sure why she was driving near Alton because she was trying to get home to Ireton, according to court documents.

She had bloodshot, watery eyes and the odor of an alcoholic beverage.
