A Brockton woman, who the Montana Highway Patrol said was drunk and abandoned a van she had rolled, has been charged with DUI and several other violations.
The Chevrolet van was left wrecked sometime early Sunday, Nov. 16. It is believed to have been there for some time before a MHP trooper drove past.
“I was on patrol and saw it sitting there,” MHP trooper Derek Werner said. “It was an unreported crash. No one was there.”
Werner said the van had been southbound on Montana Secondary Hwy. 344, crossed U.S. Hwy. 2 and went off the east side of the roadway where Hwy. 344 turns into BIA Route 1, just south of Brockton. He said the van struck a telephone pole and phone service box, and rolled one complete rotation.
The owner of the van, a Brockton man, was identified by the license plate number and contacted. The owner told Werner that his daughter had been driving his van.
Werner said the man’s daughter was still under the influence of alcohol when he contacted her.
The MHP identified the driver as Samantha Boyd, 25. She was cited for DUI and four additional charges for driving with no driver’s license, no insurance, failure to report an accident and refusal to take a sobriety test.

The Wolf Point man who is accused of hitting a Roosevelt County Sheriff’s Office detention officer multiple times after being jailed on misdemeanor charges withdrew a previously entered not guilty plea and pleaded guilty to a single felony charge of assault on a peace officer in 15th District Court Wednesday, Nov. 12.
Kaylob Joseph Trowbridge, 22, has been lodged in the Roosevelt County Jail since Aug. 12, held on $100,000 bail.
Judge David Cybulski found him guilty. A pre-sentencing report was ordered.
Trowbridge is accused in charging documents of assaulting a detention officer shortly after being brought to the county jail for arrest processing more than three months ago.
Undersheriff John Summers said the officer was punched and head butted.
A Wolf Point Police Department officer had taken Trowbridge to the jail after arresting him on the 800 block of West Blaine Street on misdemeanor charges of disorderly conduct and criminal mischief. He is alleged by the WPPD to have been told to leave Town Pump at least twice earlier the same day and is accused of damaging several shelves in the convenience store after being told to leave the last time.

A sentencing for Amber Dawn Taylor, 29, of Wolf Point was continued until Wednesday, Dec. 10, when she appeared in 15th District Court before Judge David Cybulski Wednesday, Nov. 12.
Probation and Parole officer Pam Heikens of Glasgow testified that Taylor should be ordered to substance abuse treatment as part of her sentence and asked Cybulski to delay imposition of sentence until an evaluation is completed by Eastern Montana Community Mental Health Center.
A plea agreement calls for Taylor to be placed into the custody of the Montana Department of Corrections for five years with three years suspended and a recommendation for long-term treatment at Elkhorn Treatment Center, a 47-bed residential treatment-based correctional facility in western Montana serving women, most of which are in DOC custody.
Taylor, who was arrested twice on drug charges, withdrew ‘not guilty’ pleas on five charges and pleaded guilty to felony criminal possession of dangerous drugs under a plea agreement where four charges were dismissed in 15th District Court Wednesday, Aug. 13.
Earlier this year, Taylor pleaded not guilty to possession of dangerous drugs, possession of drug paraphernalia, driving under the influence of drugs, driving while privilege is suspended or revoked and driving with no insurance, second or subsequent offense.
The first arrest came after a Wolf Point Police officer and a Fort Peck Tribes Department of Law and Justice drug investigator jointly stopped a car Taylor was driving at the corner of Idaho Street and Sixth Avenue South on Sept. 23, 2013.
The charging documents allege that the officers found crystal methamphetamine, marijuana, paraphernalia, more than 40 small plastic bags, a packaging device and other contraband in the car.
She was charged nearly a year ago with criminal possession with intent to distribute and criminal possession of drug paraphernalia.
Taylor was free on bond when a Montana Highway Patrol trooper arrested her a second time after a traffic stop at the intersection of U.S. Hwy. 2 and Second Avenue North in Wolf Point on March 28. Three passengers were in her vehicle.
According to charging documents, the MHP trooper stated that Taylor smelled of burnt marijuana and that she admitted having a suspended driver’s license and no insurance.
The trooper seized several syringes, 98 small plastic jewelry bags, marijuana, a marijuana pipe and other paraphernalia, according to documentation from the court, that also alleges that one of the syringes contained a liquid that tested positive for methamphetamine.
Taylor pleaded not guilty to possession of dangerous drugs, possession of drug paraphernalia, driving under the influence, driving while privilege is suspended or revoked and driving with no insurance, second or subsequent offense.
