A Sept. 13 noise complaint resulted in a citation for physical control of a vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or drugs for a 24-year-old Columbus woman, according to the New Albany Police Department.

An officer at 11:10 p.m. Sept. 13 responded to the 100 block of West Main Street after a caller notified dispatchers that a party involving four to five people was taking place at a residence next to hers and that she could smell marijuana.

The caller said one of the individuals involved urinated in the middle of the roadway near West Main Street.

When the officer arrived, he saw two people walking across West Main Street south of Market Street near the caller's address.

He saw the two people enter a vehicle and saw the driver, the Columbus woman, move it backward and forward in a parking space on West Main Street.

She was given a traffic citation and a court date in New Albany Mayor's Court.
