A Randolph woman was arrested on Wednesday after allegedly driving under the influence and crashing into a stone wall.

According to police, the suspect drove over a curb and crashed into the wall on Forest Street in Braintree.

The homeowner remembered hearing a loud bang, but did not hear any tire screech sounds. There were also no skid marks on the road, police said.

Officers arrived and said they noticed several signs of intoxication, including a strong odor of alcohol.

Police believe that the suspect was traveling north on Liberty Street before veering off to the right, over a small traffic island, and into the wall, which was significantly damaged.

The suspect was not injured in the crash.

After several sobriety tests, Dana Schillberg, 25, of Randolph was arrested and charged with operating under the influence of alcohol and failure to keep within marked lanes.

Schillberg took a breath test at the police station, which showed a reading over three times the legal limit of .08 percent.
