Kirkwood, NY (WBNG Binghamton) Several people traveling Interstate 81 near the New York-Pennsylvania border alerted police about an erratic driver Sunday.

The vehicle was heading north on I-81 when it pulled off the highway and stopped at the Gateway rest area in Kirkwood. One of the callers blocked the vehicle in until troopers arrived.

State police arrested Lisa N. Pastella, 31, of Townson, Md., for driving while intoxicated. They said her blood alcohol content was 0.19 which is more than twice New York's legal limit of 0.08.
