Drunk Gibson County Woman Arrested After Parking Illegally in Front of County Jail to Post Inmates Bond [PHOTO]
I'm all for helping out a friend who's run into a bit of trouble. However, if you're going to do that, I strongly suggest you wait until you sober up.
58-year-old Angela Delaney of Princeton arrived at the Gibson County Sheriff's Office at 2:30 a.m. Sunday morning to post bond for an inmate she apparently knew. There was one small problem, Delaney appeared to be intoxicated. This led to Deputy Loren Barchett being dispatched to the office to investigate the situation.
According to information provided by the Gibson County Sheriff's Office,
Upon arriving Deputy Barchett observed a Red 2005 Dodge Neon illegally parked in front of the building. Upon speaking to the driver 58 year old Angela Delaney of Princeton Deputy Barchett believed Ms. Delaney to be impaired and began a “jail side” investigation...At the conclusion of his investigation Ms. Delaney was transported to the Gibson County Jail where she was charged with Operating a Vehicle While Intoxicated (DUI.)
Indiana State Police Public Information Officer, Todd Ringle tweeted a photo of Delaney's less-than-perfect parking job.
But, wait! There's more!
During his investigation Deputy Barchett ran Ms. Delaney through the Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles and discovered that Ms. Delaney had a suspended license on an infraction...Ms. Delaney was also issued a ticket for driving While Suspended and remains in custody on a $650 bond.
The lesson here kids is that while the right thing to do is help your friends when they get in trouble, you may want to make sure you don't find yourself in an equal amount, or worse, trouble than they are when you try to help.
