Arrest #1: Boise Police were called by
employees of a retail store at E. Parkcenter Blvd and Apple St,
Tuesday, Sept. 6th at 5:30 p.m. The employees reported that a woman
had entered the store and appeared very intoxicated. She smelled of
alcohol and stumbled and dropped items while inside the store.
Store employees told officers they called 911 and tried to detain
her and not let her drive away but they were unsuccessful. The
employees were able to provide officers with the license number of
the woman's vehicle and her direction of travel.
Very soon, an officer caught up to the
driver on the 200 block of E. Highland Street. As she was stopping
for the officer, he saw her almost hit a jersey barrier and drive
off the road. The officer also smelled a strong odor of an
alcoholic beverage coming from the driver, identified as Michelle
Caves. After failing field sobriety tests, she was arrested and
taken to the Ada County Jail where she blew a .371/.339/.328 blood
alcohol content. Cave's car was secured at the scene and her keys
were booked in with her property at the jail.
Arrest #2: Boise Police were called by a
citizen shortly before 10:00 p.m. Tuesday night, Sept 6th reporting
a DUI driver had returned to their car and was going to drive home.
Officers recognized the woman's description as the same woman they
had just arrested for DUI less than five hours earlier. One of the
previous arresting officers arrived on scene as the suspect Caves
was coming around the corner northbound on the 200 block of E.
Mallard Dr., just around the corner from the previous DUI arrest.
The officer saw the driver swerve into oncoming traffic and almost
drive head on into his patrol vehicle. The officer turned around
and made a traffic stop on the suspect vehicle. As the officer
approached Caves, he could still smell alcohol. Again, she failed
field sobriety tests and was arrested for DUI. At the Ada County
Jail Caves blew a .24/.23 on the Intoxilyzer. Following her arrest,
officers requested Caves car be towed to a private, secure lot.
