PHOENIX — A Scottsdale woman is accused of several DUI charges for allegedly driving the wrong way on Interstate 17 in north Phoenix.

Authorities say 44-year-old Carmelina Long was arrested late Monday after her vehicle was stopped by the Arizona Department of Public Safety.

She was arrested on suspicion of aggravated assault, endangerment, criminal damage, DUI and extreme DUI for having a blood-alcohol level well above the state's legal limit of .08 percent.

Long's bond was set at $5,000 after her initial court appearance Tuesday.

She doesn't have an attorney yet and the court is appointing a public defender to represent her with a Dec. 3 status conference scheduled.
