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