An Arlington woman was arrested for drunk driving Friday night after a concerned citizen called police to report an erratic motorist driving with her head down.

Kristen Good, 28, of 31 Highland Ave., Arlington, was arrested and charged with negligent operation of a motor vehicle, operating a motor vehicle with a suspended license, drunk driving and warrant charges.

Police said Good was swerving all over the road and weaving in and out of traffic lanes without using a signal. A witness told police Good nearly struck a bicyclist on the side of the road.

When Good was stopped at 19 Union Square, police observed a half empty bottle of Bacardi in the passenger seat. She allegedly slurred her speech and smelled of alcohol.

Police said Good could not pass sobriety tests they administered.
