A Burlington police telecommunicator faces DWI and speeding charges after she registered .21 on a blood test Saturday.

The telecommunicator, Christina Nicole Tatum, is 24 and lives on South Church Street in Burlington, NC.

She also was cited with driving 60 mph in a 45-mph zone after a state Highway Patrol trooper stopped her on U.S. 70 at 12:20 a.m. Saturday, according to a traffic citation.

Tatum was stopped after she drove through a DWI checkpoint, according to a report on www.digtriad.com, the Web site of WFMY-TV.

John Nixon, the spokesman for the city of Burlington, said Tatum is on paid administrative leave. She has worked for the police department since November 2007, Nixon added.
