Woman Arrested for 3rd Offense DUI

NORFOLK - A 51-year-old Norfolk woman has been arrested for drunk driving after nearly backing into a police officer. Norfolk Police Captain Leon Chapman says Joann Zohner was observed by an off-duty officer in the parking lot of a business on South 25th Street about 12:25 p.m. Thursday. He thought she appeared to be intoxicated, and called for an on-duty officer to handle the situation. The on-duty officer had to take evasive action to avoid being struck when Zohner backed up. Chapman says Zohner was arrested for third offense driving under the influence with a blood alcohol level about .15. She was taken to the Norfolk City Jail awaiting transfer to the Madison County Jail.
