A Hampstead woman was arrested and charged with 11 traffic violations after she allegedly drove while intoxicated and collided into another vehicle Saturday night.

She was released on her own recognizance March 31, according to online court records.

According to the statement of probable cause, police were called to a hit-and-run traffic incident, and were directed to Asper, who they found standing by her vehicle. Asper’s vehicle had hit a parked truck, the documents say. No injuries were reported.

Asper said she had only “two shots” to drink, and officers noticed she had glassy, bloodshot eyes, and that her movements were unsteady, the documents say.

A field test showed Asper had a BAC of .372, according to the statement. Asper was arrested at about 11:30 p.m. Saturday, and her vehicle was towed, according to the statement.

The legal driving limit in Maryland is .04 for a DWI and .08 for a DUI. A level of .35 to .40 is considered potentially fatal, according to American Addiction Centers, Inc.

A test performed at the Carroll County Detention Center showed a level of .342, the statement said.

Asper was released on her own recognizance Sunday, according to online court records. She does not currently have an attorney listed.

A court date is scheduled for June 12.
