A woman is accused of driving while intoxicated after crashing into a jewelry store in Irving Tuesday morning, police say.

Mariela Anahi Castillo Arizpe had been drinking at a Dallas bar before crashing a Ford Explorer into the front of the Jewelry Exchange on the 100 block of West Airport Freeway, according to a probable cause affidavit.

The doors to the store on the west side of the building were heavily damaged, police said. Some of the building was damaged as well.

According to the affidavit, Arizpe told police she was at an eight on a scale of one to 10, with one being sober and 10 being drunk. The affidavit described officers encountering fresh vomit that had been "projected all over the front passenger seat" and her clothes.

The results of a voluntary blood test are pending, police said.

The jewelry store was closed at the time of the crash.

An early report from police indicated the crash was accidental and was not a burglary attempt.

No other information was available.
