POSTED: 3:27 PM May 24 2013

A 29-year-old woman faces a felony DUI charge after the vehicle she was driving reportedly sideswiped a Missoula police car.

Court records say Kristy Lee Augare was supposed to have an interlock device on her car that prevents it from moving if she's intoxicated, but there was no such device on the minivan she was driving early Friday.

Charging documents say officers were responding to a noise complaint at about 2:30 a.m. when they heard a crash coming from the area where their cars were parked.

Court records say police stopped the vehicle and found Augare was driving with a suspended license. Her blood-alcohol level was 0.117 percent, above the legal limit of 0.08 percent.

The Missoulian reports (http://bit.ly/1348PsE) Augare was scheduled to appear in Justice Court Friday.
