Intoxicated physician accused of threatening an officer

DUI
Michelle O' Meara

By Michael Purdy

Bixby, Okla. —

A Bixby woman was caught driving drunk late Friday night, with two children in her car.

Police say 57-year-old Michelle O'Meara was stopped near 151st and Memorial, because she had almost struck a curb.

It didn't take long for officers to realize she had been drinking.

Police say O'Meara had a strong odor associated with drinking alcoholic beverages, and she was confused about her location. Plus, she didn't do so well on her field sobriety test.

Officers discovered a 6-year-old girl, and an 8-year-old boy inside her car. No word on if she's related to the children.

Once in custody, O'Meara started to become belligerent with the officers.

Police say she admitted to being a physician, and told one officer, "If I ever go to the E.R., than I am toast."

O'Meara faces counts of aggravated DUI and child endangerment.
