A Scituate woman faces her fourth YES charge after allegedly ramming a parked car early Sunday morning in Cohasset.

Linda Burlingame, 62, was arrested and charged with driving a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol (fourth offence), careless operation of a motor vehicle and lane violation.

Cohasset Police responded to a report of an accident in the Border Street Bridge area at approximately 12:30 p.m. and found “an unoccupied, legally parked Audi SUV with rear damage and a occupied Honda sedan with heavy damage parked in front and run a short distance,” according to a press release.

Police said they approached the Honda and tried to speak to the driver – who was later identified as Burlingame – but she “appeared confused, refused medical attention and attempted to start her car to go”.

Police told Burlingame to turn off the car and get out, but they took her into custody after she “showed clear signs of being impaired”.

Burlingame was arraigned in Quincy District Court on Monday and released on the condition that she wear an alcohol tracking and monitoring bracelet, police said. She is expected back in court on December 13 for a pre-trial conference.
