The Wolf Point woman who authorities say was intoxicated and fled the scene after striking a bicycle injuring an 11-year-old girl in August, was charged with her third DUI in less than seven weeks Thursday, Sept. 17. This time, she rolled a pickup, was trapped and extricated.
Kayla Beauchman, 21, was transported by ambulance to Northeast Montana Health Services - Wolf Point Campus with non-life threatening injuries.
The Wolf Point Police Department identified Beauchman as the driver of the rolled pickup and reported that she was taken into custody by the Fort Peck Tribes Department of Law and Justice upon her release from the hospital later on Sept. 17 and taken to the Fort Peck Tribes jail in Poplar and charged with driving under the influence.
The WPPD previously arrested Beauchman for driving under the influence and contributing to the delinquency of a minor on Aug. 1 and again shortly after the hit-and-run crash on Blaine Street between Albertson’s and Triangle Park Sunday, Aug. 23. She was also charged with DUI and duties in the event of an accident, which is a tribal code equivalent to leaving the scene of an accident, at that time.
The FPTDLJ did not provide information on the arrest or charges.
