Updated: RI woman facing OUI charge after wrong-way drive

BOURNE – A Rhode Island woman is facing drunk driving charges after allegedly driving west in the eastbound lanes of Route 6 for several miles early Tuesday morning. State Police stopped the vehicle just over the Sagamore Bridge after one trooper reportedly had to take evasive action to avoid a head-on collision. Maureen Bento, 52, of East Providence was charged with operating under the influence of liquor, operating negligently to endanger, marked lanes violation and one way violation on a state highway. She was due to be arraigned Tuesday in Falmouth District Court.
