A Nicholasville woman was arrested Jan. 4 for a second offense of operating a motor vehicle under the influence of drugs or alcohol, according to a citation issued by the Nicholasville Police Department.

Taryn B. Hill, 20, of 128 Rainbow Drive, was allegedly traveling southbound on US27 at a slow speed, causing a traffic hazard. After a bystander said Hill turned down Corman Road, officers located her turning left from Shun Drive onto US127 South, according to the citation.

Hill was described as having glassy eyes and being slightly confused, according to the citation.

After conducting a standardized field sobriety test, Hill was arrested and transported to Saint Joseph Jessamine for a blood sample. Hill was then transported to the Jessamine County Detention Center, according to the citation.
