HOUSTON COUNTY, Ala (WDHN) — A Rehobeth softball coach was behind bars in Houston County for a short time on a DUI charge after investigators say she was driving erratically and crashed over the weekend.

According to Dothan Police, late Saturday, March 2, officers rushed to Honey Suckuckle Road after receiving a crash report and found a mailbox knocked over and a broken car bumper on the ground.

DPD Lt. Scott Owns tells WDHN that after a short investigation, officers found Summer Chandler parked a short distance away from the crash sight, with the bumper of her car missing.

A field sobriety test revealed Chandler was intoxicated, Lt. Owens confirmed.
