A Tower woman was arrested and charged with operating while intoxicated in the crash that caused a propane tanker to rollover in Cheboygan County in early December.
Melissa Skidmore, 38, had a blood-alcohol content of .09%, according to lab results, when she crossed the center line on M-68 and hit a propane tanker shortly after 9 a.m. on December 4.
The Cheboygan County Sheriff reports Skidmore was arrested for operating while intoxicated in Presque Isle County in 2003, as well.
The judge set bond at $5,000.
Skidmore is expected back in court on January 2.
