A 53-year-old Billings woman has been charged with what prosecutors said is her sixth drunken-driving offense.

Doris Valerie Wynn Rose has been charged with felony DUI and misdemeanor counts of driving without a valid license and driving without insurance. She is being held in the county jail on $50,000 bond.

Rose was arrested Oct. 25 at about 8:30 p.m. after a Montana Highway Patrol trooper saw a pickup on Blue Creek Road going about 25 mph under the posted speed limit.

The trooper followed the truck, which turned onto Jellison Road into the oncoming lane and continued down the middle the road.

The trooper activated the patrol car's emergency lights to stop the truck, but the driver continued until the trooper turned on a siren and spotlight.

Rose is alleged to have admitted that she had been drinking, and a breath test showed she had a blood-alcohol level of 0.272 percent, more than three times the legal limit.

Prosecutors said Rose has two prior felony DUI convictions and a conviction for escape.
