Eleva woman charged with 9th OWI


Eleva (WQOW) - An Eleva woman involved in three crashes in May is now charged with her 9th OWI.

Police said Shelley Walek had slurred speech and was unsteady when they contacted her May 7 at the Holiday gas station off of Highway 93.

A blood test did not find alcohol, but Walek did admit to taking prescription and over-the-counter drugs.

She is free on a signature bond and instructed not to drive. 

If convicted, she faces more than 12 years in prison.
