A St. Paul woman who police say was in and out of coherence following an early-morning crash in January has been charged with misdemeanor DWI and felony drug possession.
At one point she told Woodbury officers: “Mary had a little lamb.”
Jennifer Nicole Warner-Indehar, 29, was found with several prescription drugs in her system after the crash, which happened a short time after police were called to a Woodbury home about a domestic incident, according to the criminal complaint.
At about 1:40 a.m. on Jan. 22, were called to a home at the 7500 block of Carillon Plaza West and found Warner-Indehar crying and emotional, according to the complaint. After she calmed down she was released from the scene.
About five minutes later police came upon a crash about two blocks from the home—a car had apparently struck a street sign, which was bent over and nearly touching the ground, the complaint says. She had called her boyfriend and said she was involved in the crash.
Police found her in the front seat of the damaged car digging through a plastic bag; again she was crying and “emotionally hysterical,” according to the complaint. At times, however, she would communicate clearly and give concise information to police.
A drug-recognition expert arrived and at one point she said, “Mary had a little lamb” in an attempt to explain what she was thinking, the complaint says.
In her purse police found several pills, including four clonazepam, one trazodone, one cyclobenzaprine and 24 tablets of codine, the last of which she had a prescription for, according to the complaint.
A blood test later showed several substances in her blood: hydrocodone, codine, morphine, diazepam, nordiazepam and clonazepam.
On the drug charge, Warner-Indehar faces up to five years in prison and a $10,000 fine. On the DWI charge, she faces up to 90 days in jail and a $1,000 fine.
