JOHNSTON, R.I. (AP) - A Rhode Island woman has pleaded not guilty to charges she drove the wrong way on the highway while drunk.

State police say Jadali Burgess, of Woonsocket, was arraigned Tuesday. She’s charged with driving under the influence of alcohol. She was released on personal recognizance.

Police say a trooper working a road construction detail on Route 295 in Johnston spotted a vehicle driving the wrong way around 3 a.m. Monday. The trooper was able to position his cruiser in the vehicle’s path so that it came to a stop.

Police say the 21-year-old Burgess showed signs of impairment and failed field sobriety tests.

Burgess is due back in court Aug. 23.

Online court records did not list a lawyer for Burgess.
