A woman accused of driving 9 miles the wrong way on the Loop 101 had a blood alcohol level of about double the legal limit, according to the Department of Public Safety.

According to court documents, Nina Milos got on the freeway at Cactus Road and drove south in the northbound lanes early Wednesday morning in the HOV lane.

She reportedly hit a vehicle along the way and passed seven different law enforcement officers who had their lights and sirens on, trying to stop her, DPS said.

Milos finally stopped at Mckellips Road. Troopers said they smelled alcohol on her breath. Court documents said she had just left Sandbar at Desert Ridge where she had two margaritas.

She took an alcohol breathalyzer test and the results were a BAC of 0.176 AND 0.195.
