A woman was charged with five misdemeanors after allegedly striking vehicles, leaving the scene and walking to a bar early Sunday morning.

Dawn A. Cole, 39, of Tiffin, was charged with operating a vehicle while intoxicated and hit-skip on public property, first-degree misdemeanors, and drugs-possession/abuse, drugs-marijuana paraphernalia and failure to control, all minor misdemeanors, early Sunday morning.

According to a Tiffin Police Department report, a person in the 200 block of North Washington Street reported a hit-skip accident at 12:25 a.m. Sunday.

Marijuana and paraphernalia were recovered from the vehicle, DeMonte said.

Cole was released to a sober person, he said.
