A woman plowed into a veterans cemetery on Memorial Day, damaging gravestones and cars, according to Colorado police.
Denver police said they suspect the woman was intoxicated when she crashed into Fort Logan National Cemetery on Monday, swiping two cars and driving into an undisclosed number of headstones, CBS Denver reported.
The woman was arrested and faces DUI charges, according to the TV station.
Douglas County Commissioner Lora Thomas tweeted Monday that she was visiting her father’s grave when she saw a car between the gravestones.
