Arlington Woman Arrested for DUI After Hit-and-Run Crash

Rachel White was charged with DUI, first offense, and leaving the scene of property damage, police said.

At about 12:55 a.m. Friday, police responded to Gray Street, near its intersection with Lockeland Avenue. There, officers found a Mazda3 hatchback with heavy damage to its rear bumper and shattered rear and back-left windows in a residence’s front yard, according to police.
