A 53-year-old Hopkinton woman was arrested around 8:45 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 30, for a DUI charge and refusal to submit to a chemical test.

Police were dispatched to the train tracks near Admiral Kalbfus road for a report of a vehicle stuck on the tracks.

The woman told police she had accidentally driven her car onto the tracks, thinking it was the parking lot for Mama Leone's. She said she was trying to pull into the parking lot and mistook the train tracks for the entrance.

When asked why she wanted to park there, she said she wanted to walk on to the Navy Base, where her boat was located. She reportedly told police she could not drive on to the base because she had had too much to drink.

She refused to take the chemical test.

The above reports detail arrests made by the Newport Police Department. Descriptions of all events are based solely on police officer reports provided to Patch.

Editor's note: The above article has been amended to reflect changes in the case. The charges were amended from driving under the influence to reckless driving and were expunged on Sept. 6, 2013.
