LYMAN COUNTY - A Huron woman was arrested after crashing her vehicle, lying to police about her identity and having drug paraphernalia in the vehicle.

On Jan. 5, Emily Huether drove her vehicle into the ditch on South Dakota Highway 47, near mile marker 47 in Lyman County, according to court documents.

When South Dakota Highway Patrol officers arrived, she allegedly said her name was Emily Thames, but it was later determined her last name is Huether.

Her blood alcohol content was 0.116, nearly twice the legal driving limit of 0.16. The officer also found a glass pipe with burnt white residue inside. The residue was scheduled to be tested for methamphetamine.

Huether was arrested and charged with second-offense driving under the influence, false impersonation to law enforcement, driving with a revoked license, possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.

All charges are misdemeanors except possession of a controlled substance, which is a Class 5 felony, punishable by up to five years in prison and a $10,000 fine.

Huether is also being held on misdemeanor charges out of Jerauld County.
