MERIDIAN, Idaho (AP) -- The Ada County jury coordinator has been charged with drunken driving.

The Idaho Statesman reports 69-year-old Marji Shepherd of Meridian was taken into custody and booked into the Ada County Jail this week.

Shepherd was charged with driving under the influence and for failing to notify police following an accident after striking fixtures on or near a highway, both misdemeanors.
