Police in Ledyard said they arrested a 71-year-old woman for drunk driving and driving without a valid license.
They said Constance V. Konyves was found to be speeding southbound on Route 12 just before 1:30 a.m. on Friday.
Officers said she was going 64 mph in a 45 mph zone.
When they stopped her, they said they could smell the alcohol on her breath.
They also determined that she'd been driving without a valid Connecticut driver's license.
Konyves was taken into custody and released on a non-surety bond.
She was charged with speeding, operating a vehicle without a valid license and operating a motor vehicle under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol.
She's scheduled to face a judge in New London Superior Court on Aug. 26.
