A Pittsburgh Pennsylvania woman pled guilty to DUI in Allegheny County Common Pleas Court. As she was being led to the probation office, an officer gave her a breath test. She was found to have a BAC more than twice the legal limit. She was immediately taken to jail. The defendant admitted that she had been frustrated with her long wait in court and had “a few vodkas” during the lunch break.
This was the second time in a month that a defendant was drunk in Pittsburgh court during a DUI hearing. A man who was drunk at his hearing earlier this month learned that he would be spending another week in jail before he could enter the county’s recovery program. Because of the thank giving weekend he could not be released from jail until Tuesday.
