Schweickert, according to the statement, was behind the wheel despite her car's registration allegedly being suspended. She also lacks insurance for the vehicle, police say.

Police have charged Schweickert with possessing a forged instrument as well as three vehicle and traffic violations, according to officials.

She is being held on $400 bail and it was unclear Friday if she has retained legal counsel.
