Drunk Michigan Woman Arrested When She Mistook A County Jail For A Bar
A Hartford woman was arrested early Sunday morning for drunken driving after she allegedly pulled into the parking lot of the Van Buren County Jail, which she believed to be a bar, according to a press release issued by the Van Buren County Sheriff’s Office.
Police said the 39-year-old woman pulled into the parking lot of the sheriff’s office, located at 205 S. Kalamazoo St., shortly after 2 a.m. Patrol units observed the woman as she began backing up in the parking lot while trying to convince her boyfriend to rejoin her in her vehicle.
A deputy then made contact with the driver and discovered she smelled heavily of intoxicants and appeared to be under the influence of alcohol, the release stated.
A breathalyzer test subsequently revealed the woman had a BAC of more than twice the legal limit of .08, police said.
The woman later admitted to police that she had just left a bar in town and had thought she was pulling into the parking lot of another bar when she arrived at the sheriff’s office.
She is currently being held in the Van Buren County Jail and is expected to face charges of operating while intoxicated and high BAC, which means the woman was found to have a BAC of .17 or higher.
