Cheyenne Woman Arrested After Using Forklift To Move Van
Cheyenne Police say a Cheyenne woman was arrested for DUI around midnight Saturday for using a State of Wyoming forklift to move a van that was blocking her driveway.
According to the CPD facebook page Ashley Basich, who works for the state, went and got an industrial forklift from her employer (without her boss's knowledge) to move her own van which was blocking her driveway.
It's not clear whether she allegedly used the forklift to move the vehicle because the van wasn't running or for some other reason. Her neighbors called the police because they were unhappy about the noise she was making at midnight, according to police.
Police say she had a cooler of beer in the cab and was wearing flip flops, which is a possible violation of OSHA rules for operating the forklift. The police did not state Basich's address.
