TROY (WWJ) – A 44-year-old Rochester Hills woman whose driver’s license has been suspended 24 times is now facing a drunk driving charge.
Ann Marie Cummins pleaded not guilty Monday in 52-4 District Court in Troy on charges of operating while intoxicated — second offense, and driving while license suspended. Magistrate Clement Waldmann set bond at $2,000.
Police say a woman flagged down a Troy officer in the area of Rochester Road and I-75 around 12:15 p.m. Sunday and pointed out a vehicle that had rear-ended her car and then failed to stop following the accident.
The officer stopped the suspect vehicle and made contact with the driver, later identified as Cummins. Police say Cummins told them she didn’t stop after the crash because she knew she was not supposed to be driving.
The officer checked Cummins’ record and found that her driver’s license was suspended and she had outstanding warrants for her arrest issued by six different law enforcement agencies. Further investigation showed that Cummins previously had her license suspended 24 times.
Additionally, police say Cummins was found to be in possession of a prescription muscle relaxer, which is a controlled substance. According to police, Cummins admitted she did not have a prescription for the drug.
Police say Cummins was then taken into custody without incident.
