Police: Malta woman reported herself for DUI

SYCAMORE – A 24-year-old Malta woman called police from the side of the road to tell them she had been drinking and driving Tuesday, authorities said.

Sarah Walsh, of the 300 block of S. Malta Road, called DeKalb County Sheriff's police about 8:15 p.m. Tuesday, according to a news release. She said she had been drinking alcohol and wanted to speak to a deputy for help, the release stated. She had pulled her vehicle to the side of Schafer Road south of Rich Road, a couple of miles north of Malta.

Walsh was charged with two counts of driving under the influence after police conducted roadside sobriety testing with her, the release states. A judge released her on her own recognizance, and Walsh is due in court Oct. 15.
