BOSTON, N.Y. (WIVB) – Police say a mother was drunk when her vehicle struck the Boston Free Library Monday afternoon. New York State Police say the situation began when 41-year-old Julie L. Turner showed up at the library, hoping her children were there.
Library workers were concerned and called police. Turner left and allegedly hit the building as she drove away. Troopers arrived at the library to interview staff, when Turner pulled back in.
The trooper determined Turner was intoxicated and drove her to her home to find her children. Turner had a message on her cell phone from her children, saying they were at a neighbor’s home. Police took Turner to check on the children, who were in good care.
Police say they took Turner to the station where she refused to submit a chemical test. She was arrested for DWI, refusing to take a breath test and speed not reasonable and prudent. She will appear in Town of Boston Court at a later date.
