Police: NH woman charged with DWI after car found resting on temporary sewer lines


EXETER — An Exeter woman is facing several charges after she was allegedly found in her car while it rested on top of temporary sewer lines after she crashed her car around midnight Friday.

The Exeter Police Department responded to the area of 5 High St. for a report of a single-car crash. When officers arrived, they found Brandie Nichols, 32, behind the wheel of her car as it rested atop the sewer lines.

Police determined Nichols was impaired from alcohol and/or drugs and was arrested on scene. She submitted to a breath test, which showed a BrAC sample of 0.29, police said.

Al’s Towing, of Exeter, removed the car from the sewer lines.

Exeter Public Works and other construction crews have been replacing a collapsed 15-inch sewer main on the street, which is the reason for the temporary sewer lines.

Nichols was charged with an aggravated DWI, misdemeanor A, DWI - second offense, misdemeanor A and two counts possession of a controlled drug, a felony.

Bail was later set at $2,000 personal recognizance, and she is scheduled for arraignment April 20.
