A police officer has been filmed dragging an alleged drunk driver from a police car after her van smashed into two parked cars on a quiet suburban street.

A police officer was recorded dragging an alleged drunk driver from a police car after her van smashed into two parked cars on a quiet suburban street
The incident occurred on Guilford Avenue just before 2pm on Wednesday, with footage from the scene showing the 40-year-old struggling to remain on her feet.
She was whisked into a patrol car before an officer re-emerges, dragging the woman with one arm after she allegedly refused to sit still.
Police say the woman then became aggressive, so they took her for further review in the back of an ambulance.
Witnesses claimed the woman did not appear in a good state of mind after discovering her white Holden van had allegedly ploughed into two vehicles.
Witnesses described the woman as being ‘not right at all’ after discovering her white Holden van had plouged into their vehicles
‘She was not right. Not right at all,’ one neighbour said.
‘She managed to hoist herself out (of the car), grabbed her bag and ran down the street. Another lady followed her so the cops could get to her.’
Another woman said she came outside to see her ‘hooning’ down the street before smashing cars and rolling ‘sideways’.
In a statement South Australia Police said she had been charged with a string of offences.
