A Burkburnett woman is out of jail Wednesday after she was arrested and charged with DWI after police say she crashed into a home Tuesday night.

Latisha Wells, 32, was booked early Wednesday morning and her bond was later set at $500.

A records search shows no prior convictions.

The accident happened just before 7:30 p.m. Tuesday night.

Burkburnett police arrived in the 1100 block of Clover to find major damage to the home, but no vehicle at the scene.

The home had a large hole in a front room and police say one person was in the home when the car crashed through, but was apparently not injured.

Witnesses told officers the driver backed out of the house after the crash and the car was parked down the street.

Officers found the car a few houses down with front end damage, but the driver was not inside.

As officers got out, they said Wells walked over from across the street. Records list her address at that location.

Police asked Wells if she was the driver of the car and she said yes, and that she had just blacked out.

An officer said he detected the odor of alcohol on Wells’ breath, her speech was slurred and she was staggering.A Burkburnett woman is out of jail Wednesday after she was arrested and charged with DWI after police say she crashed into a home Tuesday night.

An officer said he detected the odor of alcohol on Wells’ breath, her speech was slurred and she was staggering.

Authorities said Wells told them she had taken her Xanax and Lexapro and also half a shot of liquor.

Officers performed a field sobriety test and said they detected 15 clues of intoxication.

Wells was then taken to the hospital and refused to give a blood sample, so officers obtained a warrant for the blood. Results of the tests were not available.
