Woman gets DWI in attempt to bail out drunk-driving friend

A Louisiana woman was arrested for drunk driving after she decided to drive to jail to bail out her friend who was also arrested for drunk driving.

Officers pulled over a car "full of drunks" Saturday and subsequently charged the driver with a DWI. According to The Times-Piacayune, the passengers were sent home in a cab, but one of them decided she would take it upon herself to help her friend. When she arrived at the police station, she was also arrested and charged.

In a Facebook post by the Slidell Police Department, representatives offered this piece of advice: "Lesson of the day...don't drive drunk to a police station in order to bail out your drunk friend!"
