ROTTERDAM — A Rotterdam woman and her husband were arrested separately on drunken driving charges Tuesday in an incident that began when the woman nearly hit a police car head-on, police said.

The officer avoided the collision and soon pulled over the driver, identified as Eunice M. Graham, 55, of Rotterdam, then charged her with driving while intoxicated.

Officers later arrested her husband, identified as Michael L. Graham, 67, of Rotterdam, after they say he drove drunk to the police station to inquire about her status following her arrest, police said.

The incident began Tuesday on Draper Avenue in Rotterdam, police said. Officer Daniel Bonitatibus was on patrol when Eunice Graham swerved into his lane and nearly hit him head-on, police said.

Bonitatibus pulled her over a short distance away and found her to be intoxicated. She was charged with aggravated driving while intoxicated, accused of having a blood alcohol content of 0.18 or more.

Shortly afterward, Michael Graham then drove to the station. He was found to also be intoxicated and charged with felony driving while intoxicated. He was arraigned and ordered held.
