While at the scene, Notmeyer provided a breathalyzer sample and it showed her blood alcohol content was .355%. Notmeyer then provided two more additional breath samples which showed her blood alcohol content was .37% (four times the legal limit).
Notmeyer was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol and causing bodily injury. Notmeyer was then medically cleared for incarceration and transported to The Mendocino County Jail for the following violations: 23153(A) CVC (driving under the influence and causing bodily injury), and 23153(B) CVC (driving under the influence and causing bodily injury while over .08% BAC).
