Sabrina Lavoie La Tribune A drunk woman was arrested by the Sherbrooke Police Department (SPS) overnight from Saturday to Sunday after having picked up her spouse at the police station … for the same reason.
The 33-year-old man accompanied by his wife was first arrested by the police outside a bar in the east of Sherbrooke, around midnight, for impaired driving. After blowing into the breathalyzer, he was released with a promise to appear, says the SPS.
At around 3 a.m., while returning to the scene to tow the vehicle, the patrollers had to intercept a vehicle traveling in the opposite direction on 12th Avenue. As they approached the driver, they quickly recognized the man arrested a few hours earlier in the passenger seat.
The 29-year-old woman was also arrested for impaired driving after failing the breathalyzer. Both vehicles were eventually towed.
In addition to being without a car, the two individuals had their driver's licenses suspended for 90 days. They will have to appear for the same reason during the year, says the SPS.
