RICHLAND -- Richland police arrested Alison Lambie, 30, of Richland, early Sunday after her 2004 Dodge Durango ended up in the rough near the 18th hole of the Columbia Point Golf Course.
Lambie reportedly was driving south on George Washington Way at Columbia Point just after midnight when her Dodge SUV rear-ended another vehicle stopped at a red light, then caromed off a second car while apparently trying to leave the accident scene.
Officers said Lambie, who police said appeared to be highly intoxicated, was found in the Dodge where it slammed into a tree on the golf course's back nine.
Lambie was booked on suspicion of driving under the influence, hit and run and possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia. She also did not have a valid driver's license.

Lambie was treated at Kadlec Regional Medical Center for a head injury assumed to have been caused when her car abruptly halted near the 18th hole. The Durgano traveled about 200 yards on the golf course, tearing out large divots on the fairway and ripping across the 18th tee before it hit the tree. Golf course tee-boxes also were damaged in the incident.
Police said witnesses reported watching Lambie's vehicle leave the intersection, and head toward Columbia Point and Bradley Boulevard, where it ventured onto the golf course.
Two people in the other damaged cars had injuries. Nicole Blakely, 22, went to Kadlec, and Megan Fast, 19, was treated at Lourdes Medical Center in Pasco.
