GIBSON CO., Ind. - A woman from Princeton allegedly tried to pull one over on local authorities in Gibson County as well as Indiana State Police this past weekend during a DUI investigation, but they weren't having it...and she was arrested and charged as a result.

A press release shows that a traffic stop conducted on Sunday (July 14) at 3:30 p.m. started it all.

At that time, Gibson County Deputy U.B. Smith conducted a traffic stop on a gold 2002 Hyundai Elantra for making an unsafe lane change near the intersection of Hart and Christian streets in Princeton.

Upon approaching the vehicle, the presser said, the driver, Amy Murphy, 44 of Princeton, gave Deputy Smith a false name in an attempt to conceal her true identity.

During a roadside investigation Deputy Smith positively identified Ms. Murphy and discovered that she had a suspended license on a prior conviction through the state of Indiana.

Deputy Smith also detected the odor of alcohol coming from Ms. Murphy.

At that point he proceeded to a roadside DUI investigation. At the conclusion of his investigations, Deputy Smith placed Ms. Murphy into custody and transported her to the Gibson County Jail. Upon arriving at the Gibson County Jail Ms. Murphy was charged with False Informing, Driving While Suspended Prior, Operating a Vehicle While Intoxicated and Possession of Methamphetamines. She remains in custody on a $570 bond.

Assisting Deputy Smith in his investigation was Deputy Loren Barchett as well as Princeton Officers Chelsea Jones and Ben Kiesel
