An Atherton woman charged with six counts of felony drunken driving posted higher bail on Tuesday, and is once again out of custody.
A San Mateo County Superior Court judge had raised Margaret Brill's bail by $100,000 at the prosecution's request, according to the district attorney's office.
The 62-year-old woman allegedly careened down Santa Cruz Avenue in Menlo Park on Dec. 7, her car striking at least four vehicles and injuring two people, according to police. Three bystanders helped the injured and took Ms. Brill's keys away, keeping her on the scene.
She has two previous DUI convictions, and was arrested again two days after the Dec. 7 incident for allegedly being drunk in public at an Atherton train station, police said.
Ms. Brill pleaded not guilty in court on Tuesday, and Judge Lisa Novak scheduled trial for Oct. 31.
