Woman suspected of driving under the influence with child turns herself in

Staff writerMarch 18, 2014 

A 23-year-old woman police said is suspected of driving under the influence with a child passenger was booked into jail by Puyallup tribal police about 10:30 p.m. Monday.

Jordin Margraves turned herself in to tribal police Monday night, spokesman John Weymer said.

Ruston police asked the public to help find Margraves, after they said photos from her interlock ignition device showed she had driven intoxicated multiple times since it was installed after she was cited for driving under the influence Sept. 22.

The device uses a breath sample to prevent the vehicle from starting if the driver is intoxicated. Police said the photos also showed an unidentified man starting the vehicle for Margraves by blowing into the device.

A child was shown in the backseat in the photos, police said.

Police said there was an active warrant for her arrest, for driving under the influence.
