Police made an arrest at 1:13 AM on Clay Pond Road. Police said an officer patrolling MacArthur Boulevard saw a blue 2005 Nissan Maxima going north on the highway. The car drifted in and out of the right and left lanes, police said, and at one point, sped up from 55 to 75 miles an hour. The speed limit on the highway is 55 miles an hour. The officer followed the car and saw the driver brake hard for the turnaround at Clay Pond Road. The driver turned onto Clay Pond Road, where the vehicle was stopped by the officer. The officer said the driver, identified as Tiffany L. Skrickis, 22, from East Falmouth, appeared confused. Ms. Skrickis also had an odor of alcohol when she spoke, despite claiming that she had not had anything alcoholic to drink, police said.

A field sobriety test was administered, which she failed, police said. During the test, a man came out of a nearby residence and demanded to know what the officer was doing with his girlfriend. He was eventually calmed down and sent back to his home. Ms. Skrickis was arrested and became argumentative while being taken into custody, police said. She was charged with operating a motor vehicle under the influence of liquor, speeding, and marked lanes violation, police said. She was later released on personal recognizance, police said.
