Chippewa Falls (WQOW) - A Chippewa Falls woman faces two felony charges after police said she shot up her home, then crashed her car while driving drunk.
Dorene Maclachlan was charged in the October 30 incident according to the complaint.
Maclachlan's roommate returned home to find she had fired several round through the walls.
While police were on the scene, a call came in about a crash at a nearby home. A witness said Maclachlan crashed into a tree, then urinated on the front lawn.
That witness believed she was drunk, so he took the keys from the ignition. That's when Maclachlan began waiving the gun around making suicidal comments.
A blood draw showed her blood alcohol count was .187
She faces charges of OWI and operating a firearm while intoxicated. She's due back in court December 12.
