It was bad enough that a Twin Falls woman was arrested on a charge of driving under the influence after she failed three field sobriety tests. But police say her drunken passenger then got behind the wheel of the same car and drove away.
The Twin Falls Times-News reports that Filer police were doing routine patrols Dec. 22, when they stopped a vehicle driven by 28-year-old Krystal Webb. Police said Webb blew an a blood-alcohol content of 0.204, nearly three times the legal limit. Officers took Webb to the Twin Falls County Jail, but when they returned to the scene, they saw the same vehicle, this time driven by 47-year-old James Parker, who had been a passenger in Webb's car.
Police said Parker's blood-alcohol level was 0.126. He had also been driving with a suspended driver's license. Parker was also charged with DUI and driving without privileges.
Both Webb and Parker have a court date on Feb. 4 in Twin Falls County Court.
