Kristen Gullifer, 35, was arrested around 11 p.m. Tuesday when a Fairfield police sergeant clocked her driving at over 100 mph in a 55 mph zone on Norridgewock Road, the town’s police department said in a news release.

The officer, Sgt. Patrick Mank, then conducted field sobriety tests, which indicated Gullifer’s blood-alcohol level was more than twice the legal limit of 0.08%, according to police.

Gullifer was taken to Somerset County Jail in East Madison with bail set at $500, police said. Online jail records indicate she had not posted bail as of Wednesday morning.

Operating under the influence is generally a class D misdemeanor in Maine, punishable by up to one year in prison and $2,000 in fines, according to state statutes. Criminal speeding is a class E misdemeanor, punishable by up to six months in prison and $1,000 in fines.
