Woman Nabbed for DWI Twice in Two Days

A woman from Sparta, New Jersey is facing her second DWI in just two days after a series of mishaps during the last week of March. The woman was reportedly arrested on suspicion of drunk driving after fellow motorists called police about her strange driving habits.

Authorities report that the 33-year-old woman's vehicle was illegally parked across multiple handicapped spaces in a retail store lot when she was confronted by police. The complaint was submitted by fellow motorists at about 8:20 p.m. on March 25, according to media reports. Officers discovered that the woman and her husband were both in the vehicle; the husband was behind the wheel of the parked car, but it appeared that his wife had driven to the store before going inside.

The couple reportedly smelled strongly of alcohol. Authorities said that both drivers failed a series of standard field sobriety tests, prompting officers to transport them to police headquarters for further processing. Breathalyzer results showed that the man's blood-alcohol content was about three times the legal limit. He was charged with DWI and driving while suspended, along with other alcohol and parking violations.

The woman was charged with DWI after her blood alcohol content was measured at about twice the legal limit. She had previously been arrested on the same charges on March 23, just two days before the next incident. The woman now faces two DWI charges, along with additional counts related to open container laws and allowing a suspended driver to get behind the wheel.

This woman's case is additionally complicated because of the close proximity of her DWI arrests. Multiple offenders generally are not apprehended within such a short period of time. The woman's attorney may be able to seek a plea bargain if she pleads guilty to the charges, a move that could allow the woman to avoid prison time and other, more severe punishments.
