SALISBURY, NC (WBTV) -

 A Salisbury police officer was able to stop a suspected drunk driver after he actually saw the woman nearly  become involved in two collisions.

According to Chief Rory Collins, the officer saw a woman driving a Jeep Cherokee in the area of W. Innes and Old W. Innes near Sam's Car Wash. The officer said the driver had nearly caused two accidents just in the time that he saw her.  The officer stopped the woman in the parking lot beside a convenience store.
