The Van Buren County sheriff’s department says a 39-year-old woman mistook the Van Buren County jail for the bar where she was trying to pick up her boyfriend.
The department says Deputy Robert Miersma spotted the Hartford-area woman backing into the jail parking lot in Paw Paw about 2 a.m. Sunday and noticed she smelled of alcohol and appeared intoxicated.
It says a breath test showed her with more than twice the 0.08 percent blood alcohol considered drunk in Michigan.
At the time of this report, charges were pending. But since this report is from last October, one would hope they’d have been filed by now. The full story is here.
