On 8/5/18 the defendant was observed by a Shippensburg Police Officer exiting a vehicle near her residence. Approximately 15 to 20 minutes later another Shippensburg Police Officer was patrolling in the same area. The officer was waved down by the suspect Melissa L. EZZELL. EZZELL was upset she was being stopped by another person from driving from her residence with her children while intoxicated.
During the investigation it was determined EZZELL was intoxicated. EZZELL had just driven to a local convenience and was returning with her children and another juvenile. EZZELL was given a PBT at the scene. The PBT showed she over the legal limit. EZZELL was taken to Cumberland County Prison for arraignment and processing.
Upon receiving the alcohol and drug testing EZZELL was charged with DUI, DUI while under control of controlled substance and Endangering Welfare of Children.
