RAF Mildenhall, England — A 30-year-old Air Force officer with the 100th Air Refueling Wing was charged Wednesday in connection with a March 4 hit-and-run accident in a Cambridgeshire County village.

Capt. Amy Rawlins faces one count of driving with excess alcohol, according to the Cambridgeshire Constabulary.

The 100th Maintenance Operations Squadron officer is slated to appear in East Cambridgeshire Magistrate’s Court on June 15, said Cambridgeshire Constabulary spokeswoman Kate Burke.

Rawlins was arrested, but not charged, soon after the incident in which she allegedly struck a parked vehicle in the village of Cheveley and then fled the scene. A witness alerted authorities and police found Rawlins at her home.

She initially tested positive in a breath-alcohol test and was transported to a police station where she submitted to a blood-alcohol exam.

A 100th Staff Judge Advocate’s spokeswoman said in March that Rawlings will not face a court-martial or other military charges in connection with the incident.
