PORTSMOUTH — A 30-year-old Portsmouth woman was arrested Thursday night, July 12, after she was observed walking northbound in the right northbound lane of travel on East Main Road near McCorrie Lane, police said.
Police said officers and other motor vehicles had to swerve to avoid striking the woman, later identified as Hayley L. Barta, of 1355 East Main Road. It was around 10:15 p.m. and that area of East Main Road was unlit, police said.
Barta, who police said was visibly intoxicated and did not provide her correct name after multiple attempts to identify her, was charged with disorderly conduct and obstructing office in execution of duty.
