Carol Frances Omeara, 55, appeared in Yellowstone County Justice Court by video from the county jail on a felony DUI charge. Judge Larry Herman set bond at $3,000 after a prosecutor said Omeara has three prior DUI convictions in California. Omeara was arrested Tuesday at about 10:40 p.m. after a police dispatcher received a call from a woman who said she could not get out of her vehicle, which was parked outside her residence on South 29th Street. "When asked if she was having a medical or mechanical issue, the caller said, `No, I'm just too damn drunk,'" court records state. [BG]
