An Oneida County woman who got stuck in the woods trying to get home is accused of driving with nearly three times the legal limit of alcohol.

Lewis County sheriff's deputies say 56 year old Melanie Greene of Remsen reported she was stuck on an ATV trail off Donnattsburg Road in the town of Watson.

Deputies say they found Greene's vehicle in a heavily wooded area near the Independence River. She told deputies she got stuck while trying to find a way across the river to Remsen.

Deputies say Greene failed field sobriety tests and registered a .23 percent blood alcohol content when tested at the sheriff's office.

The legal limit for driving is .08 percent.

She was charged with driving while intoxicated, arraigned in New Bremen town court, and sent to jail on $500 bail.
