Local News

MANTI, Utah (ABC4 News) – A 42-year-old woman was arrested and booked into jail on nearly a dozen charges after police said she was impaired when she crashed into a home in Moroni. 

Court documents show Shana Kaye McTee had driven off State Road 132 on Sunday around 8:10 a.m. and crashed into the front of a home on Duck Springs Drive. 

McTee told officers she hit ice on the road and was unable to stop.

Police said McTee was not acting normal, the front of her vehicle was smashed in with two flat tires and she thought she could drive her vehicle away. She had a blank stare and was not answering questions reasonably. The weather was very cold and she did not want to get into the ambulance or any other vehicle to get warm.

“Shana was still sitting in the drivers seat and would not get out when asked to exit the vehicle,” said the arresting officer. “I again asked Shana to get out of the vehicle but she refused and just sat there playing with her phone and purse. She was asked probably 10 plus times to exit her vehicle between the three deputies. Shana was then pulled out of the vehicle.”

McTee refused to take a brethalyzer while on scene and failed her sobriety tests. In a search of her car, officers found 1/2 bottle of gin, Vyvanse, Phentemine, Methocarbamol and Oxycodone. Her urine tested positive for alcohol, amphetamines, Oxycodone and Benzodiazepine. 

McTee was booked on charges of DUI (2nd offense), open container, failure to operate in a single lane, failure to report an accident, four counts of possession of an altered or forged prescription, possession of a prescription drug for unlawful use, possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute and interference with an arresting officer. All charges are misdemeanors. 

The house sustained significant damage, the front door was broken and the front side door was also broken and was inside the living room,  two porch supports were down and two front porch freezers were broken with food spilled out on the ground.
