LODI, N.J. -- Lodi police had to smash a locked car's window with their batons when they couldn't reawaken a drugged driver who passed out at an intersection.

Susan Capozzi, 28, "appeared to be breathing," when officers found her stopped at the corner of Westervelt Place and Arnot Street at 6 p.m. Saturday, "but they were unable to wake her," Lt. Robert Salerno said Monday morning.

After several unsuccessful attempts to rouse Capozzi -- who had residue of what looked like cocaine on the shift and several syringes by her leg -- they broke into through the passenger-side window, he said.

Capozzi refused medical help after coming around and was arrested, Salerno said.

She later posted $5,000 bail and was released pending a court hearing on charges of driving under the influence and possession of drugs and paraphernalia.
