(CBS/AP) Police in Ohio can't take too much credit for stopping a woman they say was drinking and driving - they say she pulled herself over.

Officers in the Lake Erie town of Sandusky say the woman stopped because she thought she saw police lights. She did see flashing lights, but it turns out they were coming from a skating rink sign.

The Sandusky Register reports that the woman's car got stuck in a snowbank near the sign when she stopped early Monday and another motorist called police.

Officers say they took 27-year-old Nicole Scott to jail on charges of operating a vehicle under the influence. Police say Scott denied she had been driving.
