SHEBOYGAN, Wis. – A 60-year-old Washington woman arrested for drunken driving three times in three days while vacationing in Wisconsin has been sentenced to a month in jail. The woman was arrested first at 2 p.m. March 11, 2008. A deputy saw her try to drive out of a ditch, wearing only one shoe and had a blood-alcohol level of 0.21, authorities said. The legal driving limit is .08.

Twenty-four hours later, the woman was arrested after her car got stuck in snow in a park campground that was closed for the winter. The woman told an officer she had had four or six cups of wine.

"I am still finishing up the box of wine in my car from yesterday," authorities reported she told the officer.

Authorities found a box of Black Fox wine in the car.

The woman spent 12 hours in jail. She was released and headed west, but was arrested a short time later after someone reported her driving "all over the road," according to a police report.

An officer found a partial bottle of wine in her car. She had a blood alcohol-level of 0.16.

Court records released Wednesday show the woman was sentenced last week to 30 days in jail and fined more than $3,000.

An ex-coworker got 2 DUIs in one night. After the first arrest/booking, she was taken home (small town PD). She walked back to her car to get it, and got caught by the same LEO. It made the paper. She was fired, since driving was part of her job (not DOT though).

More than one DUI in a 6 month period should be grounds for permanent license revocation.

I'm so old and obsolete I had to Google "box of wine" to find out what it was.

Why bother? If she's a drunk, she'll drive with or without it.

Anyone have the name of the bitch in question? I think I know who it is...

Only 30 days after 3 DUI's? Wow - If I ever start drinking hard and driving I'm going to head straight for the state of Wisconsin.

That's getting off light.

She'd be facing real prison time here in Michigan. A third offense is a felony.

Given how quickly her driving ability diminishes she's a clear and present danger and should be permanently separated from her pulse.

After three DUI's here in VA, it is illegal for you to purchase alcohol for the rest of your life.

Third DUI in Iowa is a felony. Five years and lots of folks are doing time for it. They've got one prison (Riverside) that specializes in it.

Knew a guy that got two in the space of a week. Spent his entire springbreak in the county jail.

Good friend is an LEO. Pulled a lady over for DUI. Her EIGHTH! She had just gotten out of prison for the last one.

There's a reason why I walk to bars.

I wonder if she learned anything?
