A 19-year-old Connecticut woman busted for driving the wrong way on multiple interstates before being stopped by Connecticut State Troopers has been identified.

Carla Arza, 19, of Stamford, was arrested by troopers around 4:23 a.m. Sunday after responding to the area of I-84 and I-691 for a report of a vehicle traveling westbound in the eastbound lanes of I-691, according to Connecticut State Troopers.

When spotted by troopers, the woman continued driving the wrong way on I-691 , and eventually entered I-84 traveling westbound in the eastbound left lane before being stopped, troopers said.

After speaking with the woman, troopers determined that she was under the influence of alcohol. The operator failed a series of field sobriety test and was taken into custody.

She was charged with operating under the influence and driving the wrong way. She was released after posting $1000.00 bond and is scheduled to appear at Meriden Superior Court on Feb. 13.
