WAREHAM — A Wareham woman drunkenly drove her car into the ocean and then went home, according to police.

Wareham Acting Police Chief John Walcek says Officer Christopher Corner responded Friday, June 22, at about 6:30 a.m. to a report of a vehicle in the water near Little Harbor Beach. The vehicle was about 50 yards from shore, prompting Officer Corner to wade out to the vehicle to make sure it was unoccupied. Officer Corner determined the driver of the car, Lauren Heyward, 23, of Wareham, had made it back to her home, leaving the car in the ocean.

As a result of the investigation, Heyward is being summoned to Wareham District Court on a charge of operating under the influence of alcohol.
